The Vaucrains is one of the wines of the golden triangle of Nuits-Saint-Georges with Quail and Porets. It will be the most elegant and masculine wines of Nuits-Saint-Georges. A must to be absolutely in the cellar for a long time. The wines of the area are built to Michelot custody but after decantation, they can also be enjoyed after a few years. Prices are relatively reasonable for the quality of wines on offer. 8 hectares vineyard estate located in Nuits-Saint-Georges, close to the town hall, right in the heart of Nuits-Saint-Georges. This is one of the flagship estate of the commune of Nuits. Even if Alain Michelot remains somewhat here at the estate, his daughter, Elodie, is basically the one in charge of the wines production. She joined the family estate in 1996, followed by her husband in 1998. Without losing the power that has established the estate reputation, the wines have gained in finesse and elegance. Even if they are best enjoyed when they are young, they need some time to become harmonious. The vineyard has a nice range of “Premiers Crus” (first growths) in Nuits-Saint-Georges and, since 2010, manages a parcel of Clos Vougeot.

Vintage Description

Traduction Devastating hail storms earlier this year left winemakers pessimistic about the prospects for 2014. Up to 40% of the vineyards in Meursault, Pommard, Volnay and Beaune were destroyed by ""size hail golf balls"" in June, with greater damage in other municipalities. But the good weather in September has led to both red and white wines and harvest should be finished by the middle of next week. Chardonnay is fantastic, came with a lot of acidity. The Black Pinot is concentrated with thick skins; they have a good balance between acidity and alcohol, but the fruit is tight. It will be a great year, good for aging. The only problem is quantity.
