Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru “Aux Boudots” 2016 (94 VM)
“Bright, full ruby. Deep, almost liqueur-like aromas of cassis and black cherry; there’s something old school about this. Hugely concentrated and mouthfilling, with its very ripe flavors of cassis, blackberry, dark chocolate and violet complicated by saline minerality. Finishes dense, saline, floral and very long, with big but utterly smooth tannins that reach the incisors. This is a major mouthful of wine already but it will need time to lose some baby fat. With its slightly high-toned character and impression of fat, this wine struck me as rather 2015-like.”
