Domaine Jérôme Chezeaux, Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Vaucrains 1er Cru 1996

Jerome Chezeaux Nuits Vaucrains 1996

Immature ruby.  Vaucrains can be hewn, visceral and seemingly untameable in its youth.  This has been fettled over its eighteen years: mineral notes, garrigue and blue-skinned fruit.  No vintage turbulence in this ’96: quite handsome in its marriage of fruit, tannin and acidity.  Chiseled at the end.  A proper Vaucrains, now à point.  Now – 2025.
