Domaine Jean Chauvenet, Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Vaucrains 1er Cru 1999

Rosenthal Wine Merchant, New York NY.

Twenty years on.

Ruby.  Jean’s Vaucrains isn’t direct, it needs to be probed.  It’s poised and conveys a certain icy grandeur.  Red currant and sheet metal and tree bark after a warm rain.  The finish is long yet for now the answers it offers are just beyond grasping, and remains a lovely riddle.  Will still improve.  Now – 2035+.
