The 2015 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains has a sophisticated bouquet, very pure, a mixture of red and black fruit that are beautifully defined. There is disarming purity here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannin. There are layers of red berry fruit laced with white pepper and a hint of marmalade, an edgy bitterness towards the finish that lends wonderful tension and the length that is just outstanding. Pick of the bunch for me this year, and a wine that I expect to land at the top of my banded score once in bottle.
