1996 Domaine Leroy Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Boudots"

SKU #1160589 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 This light-colored wine is among the finest Nuits to have graced my palate. An amazingly elegant, floral, and blueberry, cherry, stone, chocolate, as well as rose-filled nose warns the palate of the impending pleasures to follow. This full-bodied, velvety-textured, and sublimely proportioned wine offers layer upon layer of candied blackberries, cherries, assorted dried fruits, as well as a seductively supple and lively personality. Even though it comes across as luscious and forward, it has a firm structure that is difficult to perceive through the loads of super-ripe fruit. (PR)  (8/1998)

92-94 points Vinous

 Excellent deep ruby-red color. Subdued but vibrant aromas of cassis, blackberry and violet. Superb sweetness and flavor intensity; penetrating flavor of spicy blackberry. Lovely acidity gives the wine juiciness and great cut. Very persistent and fine on the finish. Has fruit of steel. Great Nuits-Saint-Georges premier cru. (ST)  (3/1998)

93 points Wine Spectator

 Green olive, blackberry and vanilla are the dominant aromas and flavors in this lithe, sinewy wine. There's stuffing and concentration for the firm tannins, and the finish lingers. (BS)  (9/1998)

Allen Meadows - Burghound

 A ripe and highly complex nose redolent of a mix of both primary and secondary black and blue fruit aromas nuanced by obvious spice and earth notes that are also reflected by the maturing yet still noticeably tannic medium full-bodied flavors that culminate in dusty, linear and focused finish that displays just a touch of backend dryness that will probably always be present. I recommend drinking this with the appropriate food. Try from 2014+.  (10/2008)
