Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Aux Boudots 2014 750ml
Cote de Nuits, Burgundy, France
Character of the wine
Nuits St Georges wines make you long to bite into them. Although their name evokes twilight and nightfall, these premier crus have a fairly vigorous nature, hard while immature, more caressing later on.
Les Boudots wines, rigorous and lively, with a high alcohol content and great finesse, are notable for their soft, perfumed bouquet, reminiscent of blackcurrants and wild blackberries; their bouquet alone makes them easy to distinguish from wines from other vineyard areas.
This wine dazzles you less by its body than by its subtlety. It is as if the Côte regretted having made an oversight, and had returned to Vosne for a moment.
They are a deep ruby in colour, and possess a vigorous personality, with fennel elements and aromas of red fruits.
Vintage 2014 presents an excellent profile of fresh fruits, a beautiful purple shine and an intense colour, a very rich aromatic range, of various scents of small red fruits, and beautiful, delicate and airy floral notes. Tanins are supple and elegant, with great gustative qualities, delicate and silky.
