2017, Maison Benjamin Leroux, NUITS-ST-GEORGES, 1er Cru, 'Aux Boudots'

$162
Rich purple colour, with an excellent concentration of fruit, this is one of the serious hitters in 2017. There is a wealth of glorious bright red fruit with just a few darker notes at the back, 35 hl/ha so properly concentrated and then a really refreshing burst at the finish. Two thirds whole bunch gives wonderful life to this wine. **** 92-95 Jasper Morris MW

The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Boudots 1er Cru, which contains 50% whole bunches, has a vibrant bouquet of red fruit infused with hints of quince and orange blossom; veins of blue fruit emerge with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, almost pastille-like in terms of purity, and the finish is sensual and quite approachable. 90-92 Neal Martin, Vinous.
