One of the most drinkable Rieslings I’ve ever had, great food wine, nose was a bit corky but the favor was undeniable — a month ago
🏅 Rating 92/100 (4,2⭐)
🍷Firm and full-bodied wine. Jammy sweet red strawberries. Rich on the palate with good presence of fruit. LJ style is showing with noticeable oak. Red grapefruit on the back of the palate and a long finish. This wine is shining at the moment. Deep and concentrated with perfect balance between the big robust and the elegant styles. Altogether justifies its 1er cru status.
5-star vintage of 2005 requires lots of patience for many top Burgundy, but this one has already opened its drinking window.
📍Les Boudots covers 6.3 ha and sits on the East facing mid-slope in the Northern part of NSG and borders famous Vosne 1er Cru of Malconsorts. The soil is brown limestone and marl.
This wine is fermented in vats for 3-4 weeks and then aged 15 months in oak prior to bottling.

Finally an affordable Swiss wine that does not get lost in improbable blends or oak that takes up all the aromatic space! ... and the price is right. Well-worked “Petite Syrah” is a grape variety reminiscent of Syrah by its color and aromatic background. Dark color (purple-violet), brilliant, limpid. The mouth is fresh is less dense than a wine from the Rhône (for example) it is a fairly mineral expression, which tends towards Pinot Noirs or Gamay .. the mountain climate certainly has something to do with it. Nice bottle, I recommend.
Enfin un vin suisse abordable qui ne se perd pas dans des assemblages improbables ou du fût-de-chêne qui prend tout l’espace aromatique! ...et le prix est correct. « Petite Syrah » bien travaillée est un cépage qui rappelle la Syrah par sa couleur et son fond aromatique. Robe sombre (pourpre violine), brillante, limpide. La bouche est fraîche est moins dense qu’un vin du Rhône (par exemple) c’est une expression assez minérale, qui tend vers les pinot noirs ou gamay.. le climat de montagne y est certainement pour quelque chose. Belle bouteille, je conseille. — 21 days ago
