A top choice among Premier Crus, the Les Boudots lies at the border with Vosne-Romanee on a prized east-facing slop within reach of hallowed Grand Crus such as Romanee-Conti and Clos Vougeot. As such this wine delivers enormous depth and dramatic power, with red and black fruits forming around complex expressions of minerals, violet and earthy licorice notes. With time in cellar, this will be one of the better value dust-offs you could ever imagine. Lay it down!

Its Origins

In Burgundy’s Côte d’Or, where the integrity of the producer is often more important than a renowned appellation or vineyard, Maison Louis Jadot is one of the most venerable, most trusted and revered wine houses. Jadot’s winemaking team, now led by Technical Director Frédéric Barnier, has maintained a balance of tradition and technology in winemaking that allows Jadot’s wines to express the subtle differences between terroirs that are the essence of fine Burgundy. Though officially retired in 2013, esteemed winemaker Jacques Lardière continues to work in an advisory role and on special projects. Founded in 1859, the house has grown through a long-term policy of acquisition or management of exceptional vineyard lands and owns 528 acres of vineyards, including nearly 280 acres of the Cote d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots.

What The Critics Say

91-94/100 Stephen Tanzer

"Healthy medium red. Slighly high-toned aromas of dark raspberry, cola, licorice, menthol and spicy oak. Plush on entry, then spicy and energetic in the middle, with dark cherry and raspberry fruit flavors showing complicating green notes of pepper and herbs. Finishes with sweet oak tones and lovely power and cut. Plenty of depth here but give it several years in the cellar to harmonize."

91-94/100 Allen Meadows (Burghound)

"A heady nose of very strong menthol and wood toasty aromas barely allows the cassis, spice and earth scents to be appreciated. The flavor profile is notably denser and more serious than either the Vaucrains or Les St. Georges as is the finish that is powerful, complex, mouth coating and imposingly long. This should reward longer-term cellaring and note that it will definitely need at least a decade first."
