    • Situation
    • A wine which is very typical of the appellation ...Vosne-Romanée: its roundness, its fleshy plumpness, its discreet but effective structure. Its great maturity and its balance belie the reputation for austerity which goes with Nuits.

    • This wine ages well, but shows the best it has to offer at the beginning of its development: the fruit is there in generous quantities without its counterpart, the aggressiveness which can be felt in certain other appellations.

    • The evolution is harmonious and fairly precocious. In the cask, it's a wine which shows off the vintage in its best light. Moreover, it can stand up well to new oak, particularly from Tronçais,

    • The vines are beginning to get quite old, since half of them were planted in the early 1950's and the other half in the mid-1960's. The grapes are concentrated and very small. They ripen very well and are resistant to rot in the years when it appears.

    • Or when Vosne exercises its influence beyond its boundaries... Indeed, Nuits Boudots is the most northerly appellation of Nuits-St-Georges and neighbours on Vosne Malconsorts. Ideally situated on the lower (and nobler) part of the hill and facing eastward, this appellation has a fairly fragmented soil of average depth. Our plot is over two acres in size. At the top of this plot, the slope is quite steep, which has necessitated a protection against gully erosion.
