Good bright, dark red. Deep aromas of black raspberry, minerals, smoke and flowers, along with notes of licorice and dark chocolate; ripe and sexy. A step up in density and finesse of texture from the Chaignots, offering good acid spine to its wild dark fruit flavors. Quite dry and uncompromising today, finishing bright and long, with serious tannins and a juicy character. A very good showing. (ST)
Darker tonalities of fruit emerge from the 2012 Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Bousselots. Here the style is generous and ample, with layers of fruit that fill out the wine's broad shouldered frame nicely. Spice, menthol and pine notes appear later, adding further dimensions of complexity. The style is a bit burly and sauvage, but all the elements are nicely balanced just the same. (AG)
There is a gentle touch of wood spice to the very fresh, cool and pure nose that offers up notes of various red berries and a floral hint. There is good detail and a beguiling vibrancy to the saline and intense medium-bodied flavors that possess a firm and solidly persistent finish. If this can add a bit of depth during the course of its evolution it could merit the upper end of my projected range.
The 2012 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Bousselots has a mature bouquet, plenty of sous-bois notes: black truffle and Ceps and a sprig of mint. The palate is well balanced and appears to be just beginning to open up: blackberry red currant, sous-bois, quite a firm structure with some austerity coming toward the finish. (NM)
Mid crimson. Tangy black-cherry aroma with light spice and vanilla sweetness but also a tiny bit stemmy, in an attractive way. Relatively light in the mouth but very moreish and fresh and full of life. Dry and firm in texture. (JH)
