Benjamin Leroux - Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Aux Boudots 2018
Boudots is one of Nuits Saint George's most respected vineyards, and rightfully so! It is situated on the border with Vosne-Romanée's outstanding 1er Cru "Malconsorts"
Benjamin Leroux’s wines are always exactingly made. No detail is overlooked in the vineyard, the cellar or, in a tasting. Ben insists on Zalto stems for tastings so though you spend a good portion of the time fretting that you will inevitably break your glass, you manage to hold on to at least some of Benjamin’s wisdom and insight. Though Ben only makes wine from a total of about 3.5ha of vineyards he has an impressive breadth with over 57* appelations from which we get to select. Top flight Grand Crus and 1er Crus are always excellent with Ben’s touch and his village and regional wines are some of Burgundy’s best. There is no desire to show off with excessive manipulation. Benjamin clearly captures each site’s unique characters with aplomb. As he's told us in his cellar "I fail when I have to add somethign in the wine. The less you do the better it is."
