Ripe fruit but fresher on the nose than the Cailles. Seductively rich in cherry fruit. Incredibly smooth tannins with some vanilla sweetness on the palate. Deep and long and with the harmony for a long future. ~ (17.5) Julia Harding, JancisRobinson.com 1-16-2019

As usual, the 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains is the most structured, tight-knit wine in the Chevillon cellar, unwinding in the glass with aromas of cassis, dark chocolate and rich soil, framed by smoky new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, richly tannic and concentrated, with imposingly broad shouldered structure and a deep, reserved core. Again, patience will be required and rewarded. ~ (95) William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 1-31-2019

Relatively generous wood fights a bit with the otherwise cool and pure aromas of extract of cassis, plum, humus, earth and suggestions of the sauvage. As is usually the case chez Chevillon, this is a very powerful wine with imposing size and weight with fine mid-palate density thanks to the abundant dry extract that also helps to buffer the very firm tannic spine that really emerges on the beautifully long finale. ~ (94) Allen Meadows, Burghound 1-10-2019
