Gerard Julien & Fils Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Bousselots 2020


Les Bousselots is a mid slope vineyard, with clay rich soils. As you would expect the wines are full bodied, dark coloured and with deep soft tannins. Julien’s rendition is one of the blackest from any producer of this vineyard I can remember tasting. Spiced plum, hedge fruits, black cherry and cassis, flecked with sweet Middle Eastern spices, camphor and sandalwood. Gorgeously sweet fruit, luscious silken texture and firming with tightly framing oak. Strongly built, fleshy and graceful, with at least a couple of decades of pure pleasure. Waters Wine Co
‘Once again there is a certain lack of freshness though not complexity to the more floral scented aromas of dark pinot fruit, spice and earth. The rich and solidly vibrant medium-bodied flavors possess excellent intensity while displaying fine length on the robust, powerful and lingering finish. This overtly mineral-driven effort is bold but not really rustic. I would further note that my projected range offers the benefit of the doubt that the nose will recover better freshness once it is in bottle.’  89-92 points, Allen Meadow’s Burghound Jan 2022
