Very dark and lush fruit. Quite brooding with dark saline gnarly blue undertow then bright edges of strawberry. On the finish, long and satisfying with a masculine almost graphite note. This has a future but is good fun now.

As good as it gets. 2009 vintage. Grand cru quality and complexity.

Disappointing. Lacking fruit and the darker components of vaucrains. Similar to the 12 vintage. I’m hoping this will get better because it tastes like a Village wine. I want to love this but I do not. 2015 vintage

All you can ask for in a burgundy.. big violets, cherry fruit, cola, undergrowth, toasty notes and amazing acid. Yum!

This was brutally young & intense showing power with a deep mineral core, dark cherry, raspberry, a floral elegance & a potpourri of dried herbs. A great future for this Vaucrains that will need a min of 10 more years.

Really, really like this wine, from this vineyard, in this year, from this producer. Imagine it in 10 yrs.. Will hold my other bottles.

Still fresh. Opened a couple years ago tasted about the same. This is 2002 vintage & it's pretty awesome
