Rich deep purple. The fruit is powerful right across the piece but this has taken the heat a little bit more, at least in fruit profile, compared to Aux Murgers. Certainly it is darker and there is a little toastiness at the finish, with the barrel making its presence felt. Nonetheless there is notable power here and this should develop into an impressive wine.
Another real success is the 2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Boudots, a lovely wine bursting with notes of plums, wild berries, exotic spices, peonies and blood orange. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and concentrated, it's elegantly fleshy, with lively acids, melting tannins and a penetrating finish.
