Domaine Jean Chauvenet, Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Vaucrains 1er Cru 1990

Rosenthal Wine Merchant, New York NY.

Thirty years on.

Ruby. Iodine sea air, smoky black tea, raw venison and ripe morello cherry make for a striking nose to Chauvenet’s 1990 Nuits Vaucrains. Firm in feel, and with its dense flesh underlain by cherry pit and a sensation of crushed stone. Its juiciness is sweet and high-toned for Vaucrains, allied to a wealth of mineral nuances that shine through in a positively resplendent finish. Now – 2030+.
