International Wine Cellars (IWC) Review
Bright, saturated ruby-red. Knockout nose combines blackberry, licorice, dark chocolate, smoked meat, leather and a whiff of blood orange. High-pitched, rather powerful black fruit flavors are complicated by a charry element of torrefaction. Finishes long and juicy. The most obviously structured of these '00s, along with the Cailles.
Wine Advocate (WA) Review
Reluctantly, Bertrand Chevillon opened one bottle of his family’s 2000s, and it was wonderful. The medium to dark ruby-colored 2000 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Vaucrains bursts from the glass with coffee-infused blackberries and spices. Plump, lush, and juicy, this medium to full-bodied, silky-textured wine slathers the palate with supple, jammy black fruits, mocha, and spices. Seamless, friendly, and packed with fruit, it is a generous, forward offering that will deliver copious pleasure if drunk over the next 5-6 years.
Burghound/Allen Meadows (BH) Review
mong Chevillon's "big three", I almost always prefer the Les St. Georges and the Les Cailles to the Vaucrains but not in '00. Dramatic, sappy black pinot fruit beautifully frame the dense, intense, rounded flavors underpinned by very ripe, solid tannins and incredible length. While this is finer than it usually is with no hint of the sometimes coarse tannins it can possess, it also is quite powerful and extremely long. This is potentially a great Vaucrains in the making.
