Les Vaucrains


Products

  • Wine

    A vineyard with a chalky, stony soil. This has an enormously expressive nose with great concentration and purity. The appeal of this wine lies in its balance between this great concentration and its finesse. Lovely tannins. Very controlled. Huge potential. Impressive. Drink from 2016.

  • Wine

    Yields here are always very low as Vaucrains produces bunches will very small berries. This is great for quality mind as the juice is incredibly concentrated, with both fruit and structure. As a result this is perhaps the most backward of the range but its obvious quality is evident thanks to the sheer volume and length of flavour. This will be a runner. Drink from 2019.

  • Wine

    There is a hectare of vines here and most are around 70 years old. That is the good news; the bad news is that yields here are always very low thanks to the prevalence of small berries so in 2015 yields are even tinier. On the plus side this has resulted in a wine of great density. The nose is serious and the fruit blue (always a good sign) with a seamless streak of lively pure fruit running through the core. Stunning. Drink from 2023.

    Awaiting Tasting Note

  • Wine

    Vaucrains always has lots of small berries so you can imagine what it was like in 2013. Loss of volume however, can be lived with when the quality is this good. Great intensity and depth and rich enough not to be so unforgiving at such an early stage. Drink from 2022

  • Wine

    This vineyard has always produced very little wine, thanks to the plethora of small berries it produces. Even its name descends from the term `no value` because of this historical phenomenon. In 2016 quantities were even lower than normal with only 5 barrels being made rather than the usual 10 or 12! The quality is simply outsanding mind.
