    April 10, 2019 - Mixed WTDS at The Kenwood (The Kenwood, Mpls, MN): Medium red color. PNP, drank a glass over 90 minutes. This was reductive to start, used the copper trick to improve it substantially. Still a little reticent on the nose, earth, minerals, distinct iron, red cherry fruits that are susllen right now. 90+ to 91pts.

    December 29, 2018 - Nice wine that tastes like it should. Meaty and robust, with surprising density of fruit for the vintage. Still quite young and not showing much in terms of secondary development. Very good.

    June 24, 2018 - Clear colour, with a watery rim. Nose more resin-y than fruity. Fresh and punchy in the mouth, but missing the savoury streak and much in the way of solidity. The aftertaste is getting a bit dry and grainy. My conclusion is that this wine is fading fast. Better drink up.

    September 22, 2017 - {Bought on release, perfect fill, 2 bottles PopNPour at S.'s house}
    Initially reticent, should have decanted, still needs an hour to open, see prior note 11/2016; - had the Chevillon Les St. Georges 2006 the night before, and for me the Vaucrains will be the better wine in the future but for now the flair and nose of the Les St. Georges lets it pull ahead. [Decant this wine if you pour it now, I thought I had brought the 2001 which can legitimately be drunk from the bottle now.] Not the flair or opulence this site can show in a very ripe year, but seems very Vaucrains in terms of depth, complexity, and balance.

    September 1, 2017 - Air in the bottle for 1.5 hrs without decanting

    Appearance : clear, pale ruby, with legs.

    On nose : medium+ intensity, red fruit : sappy sour cherry, strawberry, very leafiness, beacon, meaty with a hint of vanilla oak and spiciness. This wine is still developing.

    On palate : Dry, high acidity, medium and firm tannin, medium+ alcohol, medium body with elegancy. Despite of its medium body, this wine still got some depth and complexity from its medium+ flavour intensity. The fruitiness, leafiness and meaty flavour are well balanced with bitterness and savoury flavour. A very comfortable juice.

    I love this and I love Domaine Chevillon as the price is reasonable always. This wine could be drunk now or wait for 3 more years if you like. Suitable For paring and enjoying with duck, chicken or washed cheese.
