90.5 Points Robert Parker
Scents of ripe blackberry and beet root in the Camille Giroud 2006 Nuits-St.-Georges Vaucrains follow onto a firm but expansive palate, underlain by roasted game and crushed stone. This has impressive depth, and its structure is based on fine-grained tannin and ample primary, juicy fresh fruit that lend it vivacity. I suspect it will merit following for half a dozen years.

Giroud obviously has an extremely good source for their Vaucrains as I have noticed that it consistently delivers an exceptional wine and the '06 is no exception. An expressive nose of both high and low register fruit notes with an earthy/sauvage component introduces rich, full and very serious medium full-bodied flavors that are sleekly muscled and supported by ripe tannins that are unusually fine for the cru, all wrapped in a long and sappy finish that displays almost no rusticity. A balanced effort that should age well. Drink from 2014.
