2014 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Vaucrains"

SKU #1290006 95 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2014 Domaine Chevillon Vaucrains is another stunning wine in the making, as I love the synthesis of the elegance of the vintage with the depth and power inherent in this great vineyard. The stunning nose soars from the glass in a sappy blend of cherries, pomegranate, nutskin, again, very stony minerality, gamebird, a touch of mustard seed and a judicious framing of cedary wood. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and shows almost bottomless depth of sappy fruit, with stunning transparency, ripe tannins and a very, very long, perfectly balanced and soil-driven finish. Sheer greatness in the making! (Drink between 2025-2075) Inner quote mark (12/2015)

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Ample wood spice is present on the brooding and deeply pitched nose of plum, dark currant, smoked meat and sauvage scents. Though this is an overtly powerful and muscular wine the seductively textured mid-palate is velvety thanks to the copious amount of dry extract that also buffers the notably firm tannic spine on the gorgeously long finale. This strikingly good effort will be approachable somewhat earlier than usual but make no mistake this is still going to require a long stay in a cool cellar. *Sweet spot Outstanding* Inner quote mark (1/2016)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Vaucrains has a deep, evolving bouquet with more black fruit than red, quite minerally and tensile with fine delineation. It appears to gain vigor with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tension and impressive structure. It has the substance and depth to suggest a 2014 built for the long haul, and while it is rough around the edges at the moment, I expect it will be glorious in a decade's time. Chevillon's best wine of the vintage? I think so. (NM) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright medium red. Very ripe aromas of redcurrant, minerals and damp earth are a bit less fruity and pristine than those of the Saint-Georges. Broad, fat and rich, with building redcurrant and raspberry flavors displaying impressive volume but not quite the energy or precision of the Saint-Georges. Best today on the very long, silky, expanding finish. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2016)
