Louis Jadot Nuits Saint Georges Les Vaucrains 2018
Mingling raspberries, cherries and spices with savory notions of smoked meats, the 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains (Maison Louis Jadot) is medium to full-bodied, lively and tight-knit, with firm structuring tannins and a chalky finish. This is a typically austere effort that will require some patience.
The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Vaucrains 1er Cru has a potent, marine-influenced bouquet, with oyster shells and brine permeating the black fruit, all very well defined. The medium-bodied palate offers supple tannins and good acidity. Perhaps just a little "blocky" toward the finish, where it needs more elegance and refinement.
