Tasting Notes

Vinous – 93

The 2001 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Boudots 1er Cru puts Leroy’s 2004 Chambolle-Musigny and 2004 Nuits Saint Georges in the shade when the three are served alongside each other. It has a beautiful bouquet, bright and vivid with red berry fruit, leather, potpourri and a subtle musky note. The palate is well balanced and nicely focused, quite Vosne-like in terms of tannic structure with lilting curry leaf and espresso notes towards the finish. This is drinking perfectly now. Tasted at Empire restaurant in Hong Kong. [Neal Martin, 07/05/2019]

Robert Parker – 90

Appealing red and black cherry aromas are found in the nose of the 2001 Nuits-St.-Georges Aux Boudots. This firm, tightly-wound wine reveals impressive quantities of dark fruit, excellent balance, and a finish that displays some wood tannin. Drink it between 2005 and 2010. Madame Lalou Bize-Leroy liked both the 2000 and 2001 vintages, stating that she was “rather pleased with the 2001s as they will bring lots of joy to those who drink them young” and that the 2000s “are candied fruit, reduction of fruit, the essence of fruit.” Many Burgundians chose to bottle their 2001 early in order to “trap” the fruit in the bottle, but Bize-Leroy beat them all to the punch, having completed the bottling process by early September, 2002. Typically an early bottler, Mme. Bize-Leroy felt that the 2001s would lose their fruit to either oxidation or the required sulfuring if left in the barrel for a longer elevage. Overall, Domaine Leroy’s 2001s are a success, though many were found to reveal stemmy, woody tannin in their finishes. If this characteristic melts away quickly, my scores on those wines will appear overly conservative. Importer: Martine’s Wines, San Raphael, CA; tel. (415) 883-0400 [Pierre Rovani, 30/06/2003]
