    Aux Boudots, Leroy
    #2771, 2773, 2774, 2777, 2778
    Bottle (5)
    "This light-colored wine is among the finest Nuits to have graced my palate. An amazingly elegant, floral, and blueberry, cherry, stone, chocolate, as well as rose-filled nose warns the palate of the impending pleasures to follow. This full-bodied, velvety-textured, and sublimely proportioned wine offers layer upon layer of candied blackberries, cherries, assorted dried fruits, as well as a seductively supple and lively personality. Even though it comes across as luscious and forward, it has a firm structure that is difficult to perceive through the loads of super-ripe fruit."(96ptsWA)

    "A ripe and highly complex nose redolent of a mix of both primary and secondary black and blue fruit aromas nuanced by obvious spice and earth notes that are also reflected by the maturing yet still noticeably tannic medium full-bodied flavors that culminate in dusty, linear and focused finish that displays just a touch of backend dryness that will probably always be present. I recommend drinking this with the appropriate food." (89 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Oct. 2008)
