Domaine Jean Chauvenet 2015 Pre Arrival Offer. Excellent reviews! Last Bottles


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."
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. We even have a few Magnums still available. To view them all, read Burghound and Jancis Robinson reviews, and to order on line click here.
Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains 2015 
750ml bottle Normally $241.95
Pre Arrival Price $205.50
1500ml MAGNUM Normally $483.90
Pre Arrival Price $411.00
35 bottles and 4 magnums available
Chauvenet Vaucrains label 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

Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Poulettes 2015 
1500ml MAGNUM Normally $349.90
Pre Arrival Price $297.50
4 magnums available

Chauvenet Poulettes label Burghound: 
Soft wood sets off the notably ripe aromas of earth, forest floor and game scents on the liqueur-like dark berry fruit-suffused nose. There is both good richness and detail to the vibrant and discreetly stony flavors that possess a beguiling mouth feel while delivering excellent length on the balanced finale. This could be approached after only 5 to 7 years of bottle age if that's your preference. 2025+. 
91-93 Points
Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Damodes 2015 
750ml bottle Normally $199.95
Pre Arrival Price $169.95
25 bottles available

chauvenet Damodes Label Burghound: (from a .28 ha parcel). This is more expressive than it usually is at this early stage with its spiced array of plum, violet and earth scents where the latter element can also be found on the delicious, vibrant and stony flavors that possess a taut muscularity. I like the combination of power and refinement displayed by the quite serious but not rustic finale. Good stuff that should age effortless over the next 12 to 15 years. 2027+. 90-92 Points

Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Rue de Chaux 2015  
750ml bottle Normally $162.95
Pre Arrival Price $138.50
16 bottles available

Chauvenet Rue de Chaux label
Burghound: (from a .28 ha parcel). Moderate wood influence surrounds the ultra-fresh if somewhat somber aromas of black cherry, plum, earth and once again a whiff of the sauvage. There is a distinct sense of restraint to the cool, precise and concentrated middle weight flavors that also evidence a sleek muscularity to the lingering, complex and built-to-age finish. This is a powerful and notably serious effort that is most impressive though I underscore that it will not be an enticing candidate for early consumption. 2027+. 90-93 Points

Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Bousselots 2015  
750ml bottle Normally $151.95
Pre Arrival Price $128.95
12 bottles available

Chauvenet Bousselots label Burghound: Drag noted that his parcel abuts Chaignots). There is enough wood to remark upon framing the spicy and earthy dark currant aromas. The robust, serious and concentrated medium weight plus flavors possess ample power and punch while delivering excellent length on the somewhat rustic finish. This borderline strict effort is a classic Nuits in character and will need ample time to soften what are presently very firm tannins. 2027+. 
90-92 Points
Nuits-St-Georges 2015  
750ml bottle Normally $108.95
Pre Arrival Price $92.50
18 bottles available

Chauvenet Nuits label Burghound: (from the northern portion of Nuits, specifically Aux Allots and Aux St. Jacques). This is distinctly earthy with plenty of humus and forest floor characters infusing the notably ripe liqueur-like black pinot fruit aromas. There is excellent concentration to the sleek and sappy medium-bodied flavors that are quite serious, all while retaining impeccable balance on the lingering finish. This energetic effort is a fine Nuits villages and worth a look. 2022+.
