The Les Boudots is a characteristically firm and full-bodied pinot noir. It is rich and vigorous on the palate, with a deep, pungent bouquet and shows considerable dimension and structure, acquiring a mellow depth and softness with maturation.
It will be a good partner for red wine sauces, marinated or roasted game, medium tasting cheeses.
Burghound (BH): 90-92
"Relatively strong wood influence fights somewhat with the otherwise expressive nose that is comprised of spice, earth, menthol and cassis aromas. There is fine intensity to the attractively, even seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that possess focused power and punch on the balanced and impressively persistent finish. This should offer up to a decade of development potential."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 90-92
"Medium red. Deep aromas of redcurrant, plum, licorice and flowers. At once supple and lively on the palate, showing a delicate grain and lovely floral lift to its red fruit flavors. The persistent, lightly saline finish leaves a light impression. This energetic wine is already long on personality."
