Average critic rating : 90.5 points



This is very reserved, indeed to the point where the nose is borderline taciturn and requires considerable swirling to reveal the ripe and intensely earthy nose of animale inflected dark berry fruit. The concentrated, powerful and muscular broad-shouldered flavors ooze with an abundance of dry extract that actually causes the very firm tannins to appear more civilized than they really are. Despite the reserve of the nose the austere finish is explosive and the length is excellent. Tasted: Jan 15, 2014. Drink: 2023+



Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains 2011 has a rather subdued bouquet at the moment despite vigorous coaxing. There is clearly a lot of stem addition here rendering the nose rather vegetal. The palate is medium-bodied with gently grippy tannins and here the greenness is less conspicuous, the finish fresh, classic, a little lean, but nicely focused. I think that leanness will sort itself out with three or four years in bottle. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014
