Ratings : Robert Parker 86-88/100, Bettane & Desseauve 14,5/20
« The 2012 Cote de Nuits Vaucrains is located over the wall from Clos des Marechale in Nuit-Saint-Georges. It offers attractive wet clayey scents that infuse the blackberry and raspberry fruit profile. The palate is crisp and taut on the entry with a hard texture at the moment. Firm and masculine towards the finish, this will hopefully mellow by the time of bottling because there is good matiere. Note that in 2012 there is just 40% of the normal crop of this wine. » (Wine Advocate 2013 - Robert Parker)

Guide Bettane & Desseauve des Vins de France

Wine rated : 14,5/20 (Bon vin)
Vineyard rated (guide 2020) : 4****Stars (The producers of very high-quality wines, those who are the glory of the French vineyard)

About this wine : Des tannins et de la chair, assez solide avec un caractère un rien rustique.

About the vineyard : Under the strict direction of Pierre-Henry Gagey, this winery, belonging to a rich American family, became the most important of Beaune. The wines, now made by the serious and competent Frédéric Barnier who succeeded the flamboyant Jacques Lardière, impress for several years with their impressive regularity: the strength of the House is in the security it provides to the consumer to find, in any name and in all price ranges, a balanced, tasty and very representative of the best of his own wine. The reds may lack immediate charm but are developed for age in wondrous ways. Best white have few equivalents for their complexity, their wine and their nobility of flavor, retaining better than everywhere else the vitality of the grape of origin.
