Tasting Notes

The wood treatment stops short of being intrusive though it's not subtle on the overtly spicy mix which 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.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (74), April 2019

The 2016 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Boudots (Domaine Gagey) is showing well from bottle, exhibiting scents of smoky blackberries, red plums, citrus rind and spicy new wood. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and youthfully chewy, with tangy acids, fine but firm structuring tannins and a grippy finish. The raw materials are impressive, but this is one of the Jadot 2016s that will require some patience. Drink 2024-2040.

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. Drink 2021-2040.
