The 2019 Côte de Nuits-Villages Le Vaucrain (Domaine Louis Jadot) opens in the glass with notes of sweet red berries and cherries mingled with hints of spices and orange rind. Medium to full-bodied, bright and tangy, with fine, chalky tannins and a nicely concentrated core of fruit.
The Côte de Nuits is the northern of the two districts of the Côte d’Or. Le Vaucrain is a 8.75-acre vineyard in the village of Comblanchien, purchased by Louis Jadot in 1996; of this, 6.25 acres are planted with Pinot Noir and 1 hectare with Chardonnay. The Pinot Noir is fermented in vats and then matured in oak barrels
