Domaine Meo-Camuzet Nuits St. Georges Aux Boudots 2018
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Nuits|
Like the Nuits Murgers, Méo's 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Boudots is showing especially well this year, soaring from the glass with a complex bouquet of ripe cherries, raspberries, rose petals and spices, complemented by subtle hints of rich soil as well as carnal nuances. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, supple and elegant, with good concentration, fine tannins and a long, mineral finish. As usual, Méo chose to incorporate some whole clusters in this cuvée. Like many of the wines in the cellar this year, this is unusually well-integrated at this early stage in its élevage.
The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Boudots 1er Cru has more vibrancy and energy compared directly with the Aux Murgers. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly angular tannins, a little more acidity than the Aux Murgers and good tension and nervosité toward the finish, imparted by the 10% added stems. It needs a little time in bottle, but it should turn out to be a fine Les Boudots.
