Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Aux Boudots 2015 750ml
Cote de Nuits, Burgundy, France
A restrained yet still attractively spicy nose combines notes of violet, dark cherry liqueur, violet and discreet wood toast aromas. Here too there is impressively good underlying material to the rich and full-bodied flavors that possess both excellent power and punch while delivering excellent length on the balanced if very firmly structured finale. This is a classic Boudots that in 2015 is more Nuits than Vosne. *Outstanding*
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.
Remarkable, legendary in fact! The 2015 vintage benefited from exceptional conditions of ripeness to produce deep, structured wines along the lines of some of the greatest years.
The red cuvées show deep, shiny colours and wonderful ripe red berry aromatic complexity mixed with sweet spicy notes.
The full body of the wines is emphasized by the roundness and silkiness of the tannins. In the mouth, they are pure, harmonious, rich, dynamic and velvety with an elegant concentration.
