The 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Boudots comes equipped with a vibrant and vivacious bouquet with blueberry and violets, orange blossom with just judicious touch of stemminess that imparts freshness. The palate is medium-bodied with fresh acidity. There are discrete hints of marmalade; generous in the mouth with good volume on the seductive finish. I can envisage this being quite forward once in bottle and, therefore, will not require extended bottle age like other 2016s from the domaine. This is one of my favorite releases of this wine in recent years.
