Chauvenet 2015 Header
"Drag (winemaker at Domaine Chauvenet) continues to improve quality year after year. The style here has always been old school and very Nuits but little by little it has evolved and the 2015s are among the best wines that I have seen from Drag." Burghound Issue 65
He goes on to say "....2015 ticks all of the boxes for what constitutes a great vintage and after that, stylistic issues are what make the differences between whether you prefer one vintage versus another."
 
chauvenet Damodes Label
Today we present the 2015's from Domaine Jean Chauvenet at Pre Arrival Prices. Chauvenet is a small family-owned domaine of just 10 hectares. The domaine produces 9 appellations (in regular years) specializing in some of Nuits-St-Georges' most interesting vineyards from the north to the south.

I tasted the range from barrel in December last year. I agree with the Burghound that the 2015's are amongst the best (if not THE BEST wines produced at this domaine). They combine the merits of traditional and modern winemaking and never lose the character that defines them as Burgundy from a specific, and identifiable, location.
 
We present the range of wines produced in 2015 from Bourgogne up to the mighty Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains. To view them all, read Burghound and Jancis Robinson reviews, and to order on line click here.
One of the wines.....
Domaine Jean Chauvenet Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains 2015 
Normally $241.95
Pre Arrival Price $205.50
Chauvenet Vaucrains Burghound: (from a .41 ha parcel). An exuberantly fresh and unusually expressive nose offers up notes of leather, plum, violet, spice and plenty of earth influence. Somewhat curiously relative to past vintages, the mouth feel of the focused, intense and powerful flavors is less rustic than usual though to be sure this is still very Vaucrains in style as there is plenty of punch and youthful austerity present on the driving and hugely long finish. Vaucrains is one of the longest-lived Nuits 1ers and this particular example will be no exception. Impressive. 2030+. 92-94 Points
