Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2021

    Aux Boudots is the most northerly 1er Cru in Nuits St Georges, neighbouring Vosne Romanée’s Aux Malconsorts. Another of Benjamin’s cuvées with a high proportion of whole bunches (70%) in 2020. Full of wild alpine fruits and hedgerow scent, this is joyous, giving and succulent, with a Vosne Romanée charm to it. Great breadth and a lovely touch of sweetness on the finish. Delicious in every way.

    Score: NR

    The 2020 Nuits Saint-Georges les Boudots 1er Cru was one of the few reds that had not been racked. Including two-thirds whole bunch, it has a stemmy, Dujac-like bouquet with a mixture of red and black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a lot of steaminess here and it just obscures the terroir on the finish. Racking will help this, so I will not score this for now.

    Score: 91-93

    One third whole bunch vinification to keep it lively. Perfumed notes on a very pretty clear purple colour. This starts discreetly but builds very well, with quite a savoury touch at the finish and plenty of tannins but they are properly ripe. Good length.

Producer

Benjamin Leroux

Following fifteen years as winemaker at Comte Armand, Benjamin Leroux is now amongst an elite band of specialist micro-négociants setting up in the Côte D’Or. Based in Beaune, Benjamin uses his network of contacts to source only the very best fruit and, where he has contracts, likes to advise on vineyard practices to make sure that the raw material is of the highest quality. He makes wines from a broad and diverse selection of appellations, but all show a true connection to their origins.

Region

Nuits-Saint-Georges

The second largest town after Beaune, Nuits St. Georges is known for ample wines that have textured tannins and rich fruit. Unlike other famous Côte de Nuits villages, it has no Grand Crus but does have a handful of exceptional premier cru vineyards such as Clos de l'Arlot, Les Pruliers and AuxMurgers. Its wines can be occasionally rustic, and this sets them apart from many of the more northern appellations as well as from the neighbouring Côte de Beaune whose wines (apart from Pommard) tend to be less structured and more fruit forward. This is no doubt due to a slightly increased presence of clay especially on the Primeaux-Prissey area of the appellation. Notable producers include Domaine de l'Arlot, Jean Grivot and Meo-Camuzet.
