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.
This premier cru vineyard lies at the northern end of Nuits-St-Georges, close to Vosne Romanée. That explains the structure and richness of this firm wine. It is dense with tannins that give a dry core to the rich red fruits. With acidity still right up front and with the tannins, the wine needs aging. Drink from 2021. (RV)
A wonderfully spicy nose combines notes of plum, violet, cassis, tea and hints of lavender. The concentrated, highly seductive and caressing middle weight plus flavors brim with dry extract that coats the palate on the lingering, dusty, moderately firm and reasonably well-balanced finale though there is a subtle but not unnoticeable hint of warmth. This is without question exceptionally young and while the sap and richness render it approachable, it’s clear that this is going to need at least 10 to 12 years to develop better depth as it’s a bit one-dimensional today and may well require 15+ to arrive at its full apogee.
The 2015 Nuits-St-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).
