2016 Domaine Louis Jadot (Andre Gagey) Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Boudots" (Previously $110)

SKU #1359937 94 points Wine Enthusiast

 This firm, structured wine hails from a premier cru that borders Vosne-Romanée to the north. Power, richness and mineral tension come from the tannins and the opulent black fruits. This wine will develop slowly and will not be ready to drink before 2025. (RV)  (6/2019)

93 points John Gilman

 The Boudots bottling is always one of the best-kept secrets in the Louis Jadot cellars and the 2016 is another outstanding wine in the making. The bouquet is very red fruity out of the blocks this year, offering up a constellation of red plums, cherries, gamebird, a complex base of soil tones, bonfire and cedar. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and shows off excellent mid-palate depth, with ripe, seamless tannins, bright acids and great backend soil drive on the long, tangy and beautifully balanced finish. A classic Boudots in the making. 2030-2065+.  (4/2018)

93 points James Suckling

 Lots of walnut, spice, stone and dark-berry aromas follow through to a medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a savory, subtle berry aftertaste. Like the elegant ripeness at the end.  (2/2019)

91-93 points Vinous

 Bright, dark red. Pungent herbal high notes (cannabis?) to the aromas of black cherry and licorice. Penetrating, concentrated, high-pitched wine with a very fine-grained texture and moderate sweetness and fleshiness. Sharply focused but not hard. This youthful, classically styled wine finishes with firm, building, ripe tannins and excellent energy and lift. There's nothing astringent or rustic about this Vosne-side Nuits-Saint-Georges. (ST)  (1/2018)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 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.  (4/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

 A taut, linear profile showcases currant, cherry and smoky oak aromas and flavors. Firm yet juicy, building in intensity to the spicy aftertaste. The power here sneaks up on you. Minerally finish. Best from 2022 through 2038. (BS)  (5/2018)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 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. (WK)  (4/2019)

90 points Decanter

 The Boudots is reticent but promising, opening in the glass with notes of red and black fruit, spice, coffee and rich soil tones. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and ample. It's not profoundly concentrated, but is supple and elegant, with a good core of ripe fruit. Drinking window 2022-2040. (WK)  (10/2017)

Jancis Robinson

 Cask sample. Light to mid crimson. Much richer fruit than in the Vaucrains so the harmony is better already. More depth of fruit but lovely freshness. Persistent too. Mouth-watering and moreish. (JH) 17/20  (11/2017)

K&L Notes

93 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Fresh full purple, plenty of robust fruit with some Vosne side class. Very good tension to this, fresh, showing the altitude (this comes from the top of Boudots), which gives the extra tension and certainly persistence." (1/2018)
