The 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Bousselots is also showing very well, soaring from the glass with a dramatic bouquet of raspberries, black truffles, dark chocolate, rich soils tones and a deft framing of toasty new oak. Medium to full-bodied, ripe and broad-shouldered, its ample core of fruit is girdled by succulent acids and powdery tannin. (WK)
The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Bousselottes 1er Cru offers ripe black currant, raspberry and wilted rose petal aromas on the nose, hints of blue fruit emerging with aeration. The oak is nicely integrated here. The medium-bodied palate offers supple tannins that are slightly chalky in texture, like the Chaignots, though here there is more weight and backbone toward the finish. This is a little clipped at the moment but should gain length by the end of its élevage. (NM)
The vineyard of Bousselots is also on the northern side of the center of Nuits, so again, this is a vineyard that was completely unaffected by the hail in the southern half of the commune. The 2018 version from Monsieur Chevillon is an excellent wine, offering up a quite black fruity bouquet of black plums, black cherries, spit-roasted pigeon, coffee bean, woodsmoke, dark soil tones and a nice touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and tangy, with a fine core of fruit, really exceptional backend mineral drive, ripe, buried tannins and a very long, sappy and promising finish. 2030-2075.
This possesses a liqueur-like quality to the softly spicy and earthy cassis, dark berry and kirsch aromas trimmed in plenty of earth character. The suave and sleek medium-bodied flavors flash plenty of muscle along with excellent power before culminating in a youthfully austere finish. This very serious effort will benefit from extended keeping.
