Bright medium red. Aromas of dark cherry, black raspberry, licorice, menthol and violet convey an impression of medicinal reserve. Then surprisingly plush and silky on the palate, display the inner-mouth floral lift that's lacking in some of Jadot's other premier crus from Nuits-Saint-Georges. Finishes firmly tannic, juicy and very long, with a repeating violet quality and no rough edges. Terrific potential here.
A wonderfully spicy nose combines notes of plum, violet, cassis, tea and hints of lavender. The highly seductive and caressing middle weight plus flavors also brim with dry extract that coats the palate on the lingering, moderately firm and well-balanced finale. I found this to be slightly disappointing as normally it is one of Jadot’s very best 1ers but in 2015 it seems to lack its usual level of complexity though in fairness, more may very well develop if given 5-ish plus years of bottle age.

The 2015 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Boudots displayed a slight metallic note on the nose, though underneath lay plenty of crisp blackberry and black plum fruit, focused if perhaps missing a little charm. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry and I wager showing more class than the aromatics. Nicely balanced with a dash of black pepper on the finish, hopefully the aromatics will improve and just gain a tad more personality by the time of bottling. The vineyard owned by the Gagey family, proprietors of Louis Jadot, label the wines "Domaine Gagey", whereas those from contracted growers are labelled "Maison Louis Jadot" (see separate entry).
