2019 Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Bousselots, Gérard Julien et Fils

One of the lesser known Nuits premiers crus, this vineyard is shared with Domaine Robert Chevillon, just below Aux Thorey, on the Vosne side of the appellation. Its clay-rich soils have yielded a big-shouldered, powerful Nuits, with a complex and surprisingly silky palate with an ample, pleasing finish.

2019 Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Bousselots, Gérard Julien et Fils


The 2019 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Bousselots 1er Cru, matured entirely in new oak (wood dried for 36 months by Cavin called "Aphrodite"). It has a very opulent bouquet of kirsch and crème de cassis aromas. The palate is sweet and candied on the entry, and very oaky, of course, with good grip and perhaps more body than the Echézeaux, though for me, not quite the same elegance.

Domaine Gérard Julien & Fils

The town of Comblanchien is yet to attract more attention for fine wine than for its quarries, but that’s about to change. And it’s thanks to Etienne Julien. We discovered this brilliant young winemaker (his first vintage was 2012) thanks to a tip-off from his friend and fellow rising star Maxime Cheurlin of Domaine Georges Noëllat. We can only recommend you start buying his wines now before word is truly out. Joyful, energetic and vivacious, these Pinot Noirs are a true hedonist’s delight.
