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.
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.
