Jadot Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Boudots, Domaine Gagey 2016, Burgundy, France

Les Boudots borders the Premier Cru vineyards of Vosne-Romanée, at the northern border of the Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation. The soil is limestone and marl, and an eastern exposure ensures ideal sunlight. The Pinot Noir grapes are fermented in vats for up to one month to extract color, aromas and tannins. The wine is then matured for 15 months in oak barrels before bottling. Tasting notes: 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 for 12 to 15 years.
