The 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Vaucrains 1er Cru has a more concentrated nose compared to its peers, just a little reduction but plenty of black cherry and raspberry fruit packed behind it. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, saline in the mouth with an insistent grip towards the finish. There is a pleasant marine influence that surfaces with time. Overall, this has promise. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2021-2042
