Les (or Aux) Boudots lies right on the Vosne-Romanee border, adjacent to Vosne-Romanee Les Malconsorts. The slope is steep and there are plenty of stones in the soil allowing excellent drainage.
It is a vineyard that some say combines the best of Nuits-St-Georges and Vosne-Romanee. Etienne Grivot is reported as saying "Boudots makes striking, full bodied, almost sensual wines which 'vibrate'."
Boudots makes a black fruit wine (much like its neighbour Malconsorts) with lifted, floral notes very reminiscent of Vosne-Romanee. The tannins are perhaps more obvious than to the north but are very fine when compared to Nuits-St-Georges from the southern end of the appellation.
It was a favourite of the legendary Henri Jayer and is a wine you will find in Leroy's portfolio, albeit often at around ten times the price of this Chezeaux bottling!

Antonio Galloni Vinous: The 2012 Nuits-Saint-Georges Aux Boudots takes hold of the palate and never lets up. Dark red and black cherries, plums, smoke, incense and tobacco all flesh out in a rich, powerful wine full of personality and class. The 2012 is huge and explosive today, with firm tannins lurking in support of the finish. Sweet floral and spice notes suggest a little more polish might develop as the wine ages.
