This is actually a Chateau Macquin and is drinking much older than its 2016 vintage. Wonderful notes of earthy raspberry and tobacco but very smooth Tannins. The value is perfect for a St. EMILION experience without breaking the bank — 7 days 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.

Lights out bottle from MG, one of my top 3 favorite producers. To no surprise 2002 is so open and giving and its aromatics could seduce you across the room. It’s very Vosne Romanée like as it shows a beautiful spice character and superior combination of power and elegance. There’s red currants, roasted herbs, sous bois and lovely integrated toasty oak. Finishes with fantastic length, depth and soft tannins. A stunner, and Chef Thomas Keller approved 😇 — 7 days ago
