Domaine Chevillon Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains 2018 / 750 ml.

Item#: 55969

RP93+93–95 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 13th Feb 2020
The 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains is powerful and muscular, opening in the glass with aromas of cassis, ripe wild blueberries, dark chocolate, rose petals, rich soil tones and smoked meats. Full-bodied, rich and muscular, it’s deep and concentrated, with a serious chassis of ripe, powdery tannins, lively acids and a long, resonant finish. As usual, this is the most powerful wine in the Chevillon cellar.
VN92+92–94 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2020
The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Vaucrains 1er Cru matches Chevillon’s Les Saint-Georges pound for pound in terms of intensity and precision, offering brambly black fruit, crushed rock, tangerine and raspberry preserve scents that blossom with aeration. The medium-bodied palate features very supple tannins and pitch-perfect acidity, although perhaps at the moment the Les Saint-Georges demonstrates more complexity and terroir expression toward the finish. The Vaucrains is more introspective and remains a little aloof on the finish (at least for now). One for the cellar.

Where It's From

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.

A dark and mysterious version, whose black cherry and black currant flavors are backed by a frame of dense, dusty tannins, with a juiciness and energy that carries this to a lingering conclusion. Earth, forest floor and iron notes chime in, leaving a chalky feel on the aftertaste. Best from 2025 through 2048. 125 cases made, 100 cases imported.

The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Champs-Chenys, from vines adjacent to Charmes-Chambertin, is well-defined on the nose, offering blackberry, bilberry, touches of meat juice and light savory notes. The medium-bodied palate is fresh and vibrant, with fine grip on the entry and an almost symmetrical poise on the graphite finish. Excellent.

This wine immediately conveys a sense of concentration with its nose of insistent, dark cherry paired with subtle tar and toast notes. The palate confirms this and presents concentrated fruit on a sinuous, elegant body with silkily woven tannins. For now the oak still casts a tarry spell but this will subside with a little more bottle age. Lovely freshness prevails.

Unwinding in the glass with notes of blackberries, cassis, dark chocolate and spices, the 2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Pruliers is medium to full-bodied, rich and textural, its muscular chassis of tannin cloaked in an enveloping core of fruit, concluding with a mineral finish. This is quite a velvety, charming rendition of Chevillon’s Pruliers.
VN92+92–94 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2020
The 2019 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Pruliers 1er Cru has more freshness and delineation on the nose compared to the Les Perrières, and a little more focus, offering mineral-rich red berry fruit. The palate is very well balanced with nicely integrated oak. The terroir expression is more articulated here compared to some of Chevillon’s other Premier Crus and there is plenty of tension on the sorbet-fresh finish. Excellent.

RP93+93–95 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Jan 2019
As usual, the 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains is the most structured, tight-knit wine in the Chevillon cellar, unwinding in the glass with aromas of cassis, dark chocolate and rich soil, framed by smoky new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, richly tannic and concentrated, with imposingly broad shouldered structure and a deep, reserved core. Again, patience will be required and rewarded.
VN93+93–95 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2019
The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Vaucrains 1er Cru has a little more precision than the Les Saint-Georges on the nose: the terroir more articulated, greater energy conveyed by the aromatics. The pure, precise palate is beautifully balanced with filigreed tannin and an effervescent and very sustained finish that is pure class. This could well be the standout from Chevillon this year. A wine from the top drawer.
