Allen Meadows' Burghound, January 2010
Ripe, elegant and dense aromas of blue and black pinot fruit plus floral nuances and one can smell the concentration of the rich, thick, mouth coating and impressively scaled flavors that stain the palate with chewy pinot extract and culminates in a textured, structured and superbly long finish that should be capable of extended aging. Magnificent.  92-94 points and Sweet Spot Outstanding

John Gilman's View from the Cellar, Nov/Dec 2009
The 2008 Vaucrains was showing as well as any wine in the cellar on this trip. The bouquet is simply beautiful, as it offers up scents of red berries, cherries, blood orange, great, stony soil tones, a touch of vinesmoke and the faintest whisper of new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and strikingly pure and transparent, with a rock solid core of red fruit, great nervosité, impeccable focus and a very long, ripely tannic and tangy finish. A superb Vaucrains.  94 points

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, March/April 2010
Deep, bright ruby-red. Black raspberry and chocolate aromas are complemented by sweet oak. Less refined than the Saint-Georges or Cailles but solidly built and quite powerful, with a youthfully medicinal character to the blast of dark fruit flavors. Extremely primary and impressively long. This may need the most patience of this excellent set of 2008s.  91-94 points
