Reduction. As one would reasonably expect this is both bigger and more muscular with outstanding intensity and power that carries over to the driving and hugely long finish that is rustic, chewy and ultra-serious. It would be pointless to buy this overtly austere, robust and very firmly structured effort without the express intention to basically forget that you own it for a minimum of 10 years.

The 2014 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains has a beautifully poised bouquet with mineral-tinged redcurrant and cranberry scents, very delineated and very nicely focused. The palate is medium-bodied with cranberry and strawberry on the entry, just a touch of greenness here, but in a positive sense. There is something a little rustic and enigmatic about this Vaucrains, so it will be fascinating to revisit once in bottle. There is sophistication already present in this wine.

This is vibrant, boasting cherry and black currant notes, allied to a dense texture. Builds to a lingering aftertaste of dark fruit, mineral and spice. Shows terrific harmony and balance, though this needs a few years of cellaring to really sing. Mar 2017, www.winespectator.com, Drink: 2021-2040

Medium red. Perfumed aromas of red berries and cinnamon. Sappy, saline and deep, communicating a strong impression of vivacity to its fruit and spice flavors; not a particularly black-fruit style of Vaucrains. The broad, palate-staining finish displays very fine-grained tannins and outstanding energy and lift. An elegant style of Vaucrains with a real light touch. Jan 2016, www.vinous.com
