Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Aux Boudots
-- Parker: The 2012 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Aux Boudots was reductive when I tasted it from barrel. Still, the palate is very fresh and mineral-driven with great tension and a sense of weightlessness on the graphite finish that will ensure this will be a riveting premier cru once in bottle. You can feel that stoniness tingling on the finish long after the wine has departed! 92-94/100
-- Galloni: Good bright red. A sexy point of reduction to the aromas of wild dark cherry, smoke and violet. Offers a lovely blend of silky Vosne-side elegance and Nuits wildness and structure, showing superb clarity and cut to its flavors of wild small red berries. Finishes very long and juicy, with a firm spine of acids and tannins and lingering perfume. (Tanzer) 92-94/100
-- Burghound: As it was from barrel this is still noticeably reduced so if you're tempted to try a bottle in the name of science be sure to decant it first. This is a big and very rich wine with good muscle and punch to the well-detailed flavors that possess a lovely sense of underlying tension on the austere, balanced and strikingly long finish. This is a robust effort that in 2012 is more Nuits than Vosne in character. Note that my score assumes that the reduction is a passing phase. 93/100
Winzer über 2012: [...] As a result 2012 has offered superb wines that rank among the great, if not very great vintages. The harmony of matter and precision is remarkable, boasting unbelievable quality even in the regional classification.
