This is also quite spicy with a pretty and broad-ranging array of black cherry, plum and violet aromas that are cut with warm earth wisps. The big-bodied flavors possess a bit more size, weight and evident power that are bolstered by the impressive level of sappy dry extract that also serves to buffer the lengthy if youthfully austere finale. Good juice here with excellent upside development potential.
The Domaine Méo-Camuzet Boudots is flat out stunning in 2016 and this is one of the top premier crus in the cellar here this year. The bouquet is pure, complex and vibrant, soaring from the glass in a blend of sweet black cherries and plums, raw cocoa, a very complex base of soil, gamebird, violets and nutty new oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and sappy at the core, with great soil signature, fine-grained tannins and outstanding focus and grip on the very long, complex and energetic finish. Really classy Nuits. 2025-2075.
The 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Boudots comes equipped with a vibrant and vivacious bouquet with blueberry and violets, orange blossom with just judicious touch of stemminess that imparts freshness. The palate is medium-bodied with fresh acidity. There are discrete hints of marmalade; generous in the mouth with good volume on the seductive finish. I can envisage this being quite forward once in bottle and, therefore, will not require extended bottle age like other 2016s from the domaine. This is one of my favorite releases of this wine in recent years. (NM)
Deep ruby-red. Much more reticent on the nose than the Murgers, showing more stem-influenced herbs and shoe polish than primary fruit in the early going. Then intense, penetrating and quite backward on the palate, with dark fruit flavors accented by black pepper and complicated by a hint of chocolate cake. In a distinctly serious style, finishing with a firm tannic spine and a distinct saline character. (ST)
The Nuits Boudots reveals an attractive bouquet of rose petal, strawberry, black cherry and spice, marked by a touch of whole cluster fruit which Méo finds adds a certain seriousness to a cuvée which can otherwise be rather fruit-driven at this address. On the palate the wine is fine-grained, supple and silky, ample on the attack and then firm on the finish. Like the Murgers, this will need some time.Drinking Window 2025 - 2040. (WK)
