Medium red. Subdued but pure aromas of blueberry, dark cherry and spicy oak. Juicy, tight and intense, with red berry and chocolate flavors accented by pepper and herbs. Offers attractive flesh and sweetness, finishing with a slightly herbal aspect along with oak and menthol notes. This should evolve slowly.
Maison Jadot makes great Boudots and the 2013 is a very good example of the vintage. The deep and complex nose offers up a pure and vibrant mélange of plums, black cherries, a complex base of soil, gamebirds, woodsmoke and a bit of nutskin in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and focused, with a fine core, ripe, fine-grained tannins and very good length and grip on the nascently complex finish. As is the case with several of these Jadot reds this year, the wine seems a bit low in energy for the vintage, but perhaps this is just a phase. If it brightens up, my score will seem conservative, as there is really fine stuffing and complexity here. (Drink between 2022-2055)
