Winemaker Notes

The Les Boudots vineyards are bordering the Premier Cru vineyards of VosneRomanée, at the northern edge of the Nuits Saint Georges appellation.

Maison Louis Jadot produces a characteristically firm and full-bodiedNuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Boudots. Rich and vigorous on the palate, with a deep, pungent bouquet, it shows considerable dimension and structure, acquiring a mellow depth and softness with age.

It will be a good partner for red wine sauces, marinated or roasted game or medium tasting cheese.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Boudots, which comes under the Domaine Gagey label, was not impacted by frost. It has a clean and pure bouquet with red and black cherries, blueberry and plenty of crushed violets, all Vosne-like in style. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, lightly gripping red berry fruit laced with spice and a very composed finish that is far superior to the frost-affected Vaucrains. Excellent.
Range: 91-93
BH 93
Burghound.com
Once again the wood treatment is anything but subtle as it runs to menthol. The overtly spicy mix combines notes of red and dark cherry, raspberry, earth and a whiff of violet. The seductively textured medium-bodied flavors possess a velvety yet muscular mouth feel that carries over to the solidly powerful and impressively persistent finish. Good stuff in a built-to-age package.
Range: 90-93
V 93
Vinous
(the crop here was normal in 2016): Bright, dark red. Pungent herbal high notes (cannabis?) to the aromas of black cherry and licorice. Penetrating, concentrated, high-pitched wine with a very fine-grained texture and moderate sweetness and fleshiness. Sharply focused but not hard. This youthful, classically styled wine finishes with firm, building, ripe tannins and excellent energy and lift. There's nothing astringent or rustic about this Vosne-side Nuits-Saint-Georges.
Barrel Sample: 91-93
JS 93
James Suckling

Lots of walnut, spice, stone and dark-berry aromas follow through to a medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a savory, subtle berry aftertaste. Like the elegant ripeness at the end

WS 92
Wine Spectator
A taut, linear profile showcases currant, cherry and smoky oak aromas and flavors. Firm yet juicy, building in intensity to the spicy aftertaste. The power here sneaks up on you. Minerally finish. Best from 2022 through 2038.

Nuits-St-Georges

View all products

Inhabiting the bottom end of the northern half of the Côte d’Or, Nuits-St-Georges is a busy, market-driven town and home to many of Burgundy’s negociants. It is also the largest town in the Côte d’Or after Beaune and contributes "nuits" to the name of Côte de Nuits (i.e., the northern half of the Côte d’Or).

The appellation itself is divided into two parts, where in the north it directly borders Vosne-Romanée, the southerly end is the commune of Prémeaux. There are no Grands Crus in this village, though it does have a large number of Premiers Crus.

The best Nuits-St-Georges Pinot noir are layered with cherry, plum, underbrush and sandalwood. The fruit is sweet, the wine energetic, and the finish long and lush.

Pinot Noir

One of the most finicky yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is a labor of love for many. However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. In fact, it is the only red variety permitted in Burgundy. Highly reflective of its terroir, Pinot Noir prefers calcareous soils and a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality and demands a lot of attention in the vineyard and winery. It retains even more glory as an important component of Champagne as well as on its own in France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions. This sensational grape enjoys immense international success, most notably growing in Oregon, California and New Zealand with smaller amounts in Chile, Germany (as Spätburgunder) and Italy (as Pinot Nero).

In the Glass

Pinot Noir is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry and cherry with some heftier styles delving into the red or purple plum and in the other direction, red or orange citrus. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and a lively acidity. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount) it can develop hauntingly alluring characteristics of fresh earth, savory spice, dried fruit and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon and tuna but its mild mannered tannins give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry: chicken, quail and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, Pinot noir has proven it isn’t afraid of beef. California examples work splendidly well with barbecue and Pinot Noir is also vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

For administrative purposes, the region of Beaujolais is often included in Burgundy. But it is extremely different in terms of topography, soil and climate, and the important red grape here is ultimately Gamay, not Pinot noir. Truth be told, there is a tiny amount of Gamay sprinkled around the outlying parts of Burgundy (mainly in Maconnais) but it isn’t allowed with any great significance and certainly not in any Village or Cru level wines. So "red Burgundy" still necessarily refers to Pinot noir.
