Tasting Notes

**Note: from 70+ year old vines**
A distinctly earthy nose of red currant and spice elements is set off by a subtle oak influence. There is superb richness to the voluptuous medium weight plus flavors that possess a highly seductive texture thanks to the abundant dry extract that imparts a sappy mouthfeel and serves to mostly buffer the very firm tannic spine on the strikingly persistent finish. If this can add depth over the next 12 to 15 years, it might even exceed my already high rating! Note that Boudots is a chameleon-like terroir that can be either Nuits or Vosne in basic character; in 2015, it's more Vosne than Nuits.
