96+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2012 Chevillon Vaucrains is again a brilliant wine in the making. The stunningly pure and deep bouquet offers up scents of red and black cherries, red plums, cocoa, venison, a very, very pure base of complex soil tones, woodsmoke and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and absolutely rock solid at the core, with plenty of firm, well-integrated tannins, and stunning focus and grip on the very, very long, utterly soil-driven finish. I love the blend of sappy fruit elements defining the nose and the very classically structured, pure and seamless palate impression- it is a very promising combination that will deliver a totally stunning wine with sufficient bottle age. Great juice. 2025-2075. (Nov/Dec 2013)"

91-94 points/'Sweet spot/Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a 1.5 ha parcel). A very fresh if subdued, even brooding nose features notes of both red and dark currants, game, earth and a hint of humus. There is outstanding size, weight and punch to the big-bodied and very serious flavors that possess fine mid-palate concentration as well as markedly firm tannins on the strikingly long and complex finish. This is very Vaucrains. Drink: 2027+. (Jan 2021)"

92+ points Stephen Tanzer (Vinous): "Red-ruby. Superripe, liqueur-like aromas of dark cherry, menthol, mocha, chocolate and earth; today the fruit is in the background. A major mouthful of very rich dark berry and spice flavors but this huge, deep, very ripe wine is totally unevolved today. The tannins are substantial but even and the slowly mounting finish saturates the palate. But I can see this big boy needing a long time to lose some of its baby fat and come into focus. Drink: 2024-2034. (Mar 2015)"
