2016 Domaine Louis Jadot Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Vaucrains" (Previously $110)

SKU #1359938 90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright, dark red. Aromas of dark cherry, raspberry and menthol are complicated by a sexy musky quality. Boasts lovely mineral energy and definition in the mouth, as well as excellent depth of flavor and restrained sweetness. Seems higher in acidity than most of the Jadot '16s from the Côte de Beaune but also more complex. Finishes firm, even a bit muscular, but not hard, with serious ripe tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2018)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Notes of earth and the sauvage add breadth to the plum and various dark berry fruit aromas. The imposingly-scaled flavors possess outstanding power, intensity and muscle before concluding in a strikingly long, palate coating, austere and distinctly rustic finale. While this won't win any awards for refinement, it is textbook Vaucrains. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

91 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2016 Vaucrains from Maison Jadot is also a fine bottle in the making, but this is quite structured out of the blocks and is going to need some extended cellaring before it will start to stir. The youthful and black fruity nose offers up scents of black cherries, cassis, dark soil tones, woodsmoke, venison, fresh herbs and bitter chocolate. On the palate the wine is deep, fullbodied and chewy, with a rock solid core, ripe tannins and a long, primary and promising finish. As readers may recall, the band of premier crus south of the center of town in Nuits were heavily frosted, whereas the band on the Vosne border to the north were untouched. So, the more chewy and reserved style of the Vaucrains chez Jadot this year is at least partly a result of the frost damage. Inner quote mark (4/2018)

Decanter

Outer quote mark A brooding nose of currant, wild berries, game bird and grilled meat is followed by a full-bodied wine structured around fine but firm tannins which assert themselves on the finish, but which are cloaked in a nicely sappy core of fruit. This is also a good candidate for bottle age. (WK) Inner quote mark (10/2017)
