Winemaker's Notes

The Vaucrains lieu-dit is recognized as one of the finest of the entire range of 1er Crus in this appellation.

Critical Acclaim

"Good deep red. Black cherry, menthol and bitter chocolate on the nose. Dense and nicely delineated, with a slightly high-toned character and good floral lift to the penetrating dark fruit and violet flavors. In a comparatively fleshy style for a wine from this producer; showing much more sweetness of fruit than the Pruliers. Finishes with building, slightly drying tannins but good aromatic persistence.
Range: 88-90"

Learn About Jerome Chezeaux

The Chezeaux domaine was built on the foundations of an estate owned since 1930 by Julien Missery. Bernard Chezeaux acceded to the ownership of the domaine in 1971 selling most of the wines produced there to negociants during his reign. On his untimely death in 1993, his son, Jérome, took over the direction of the domaine.

Jérome Chézeaux strictly follows the most traditional of methods in the cellar being firmly "non-interventionist." The purity of his wines is revelatory; there is an understated majesty to every offering in the portfolio.
