RATINGS

92-94The Wine Advocate

Black cherries, plums, graphite, menthol, flowers and deep, exotic spices meld together impressively in this totally striking wine. The Boudots boasts tremendous textural depth and intensity...

The earth can also be found on the caressing middle weight flavors that are blessed with an abundance of dry extract that imparts a seductive mouth feel and buffers the moderately tannic spine. This is actually quite succulent...

91+ Stephen Tanzer

Silky, broad and dry; less fruity than the Charmois and more closed today. Finishes with fine, broad tannins and herbal and peppery nuances.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Nuits-St.-Georges, Aux Boudots

Aux Boudots is a 15.8-acre Premier Cru vineyard in the appellation of Nuits-Saints-Georges, in Burgundy’s Cote de Nuits. Located at the northern end of Nuits-Saints-Georges, the vineyard is just across the appellation division from Vosne-Romanee’s Premier Cru Les Malconsorts. Because there are no Grand Cru vineyards in Nuits-Saints-Georges, the appellation’s considerable reputation rests on its excellent Premier Crus. Aux Boudot is 250-290 meters above sea level, a near ideal elevation, and the soil is limestone, gravel and clay. Burgundy writer Clive Coates has noted that Aux Boudot “is altogether more Vosne in character than Nuits.”

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
