This firm, full-bodied Premier Cru is vigorous on the palate, with deep aromas and considerable structure that will mellow with age. This will develop favorably in the bottle.
A notably spicy nose of earth, cassis, plum and a hint of the sauvage gives way to refined yet overtly powerful flavors that possess so much dry extract that they come across as velvety and forward just until the finish where the character changes to a chewy, dusty and very serious finale. Like several of the wines in the range, this is a big 2010 with plenty of muscle and fine aging potential.
Barrel Sample: 91-93
Pure, exuding cherry, raspberry and spice flavors, with a hint of earth and mineral. Balanced and bright, offering a firm, chalky sensation on the finish. Displays a lingering aftertaste of fruit and stone. Best from 2017 through 2033.
The 2010 Nuits Saint Georges Boudots is a bit more refined and less obvious than the villages, but it, too, is not shy on richness or concentration. Dark red cherries, flowers, spices and licorice are some of the many notes that flow from this intense wine. The Boudots captures a highly attractive balance of richness from the year and a slightly more feminine expression of red fruit. Floral nuances and high-toned minty notes linger on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
Bright medium red. Restrained, pure aromas of red cherry, redcurrant, cinnamon, mint, herbs and flowers. Juicy and sharply delineated, with lovely floral delicacy to the perfumed red berry and spice flavors. Finishes perfumed, vibrant and very long, but still quite tight, with fine-grained dusty tannins. This will need at least several years to open and expand, but it offers superb potential.
