Decanter, 95 Points 

"Méo owns over 1ha of vines in Les Boudots, just over the border from Vosne-Romanée Malconsorts, in the village of Nuits-St-Georges. This combines the elegance of Vosne and the structure of Nuits to give a wine with rich, plummy fruit, an earthy undertone, and an opulent structure on the palate that combines density with well-managed tannins. The balance is strikingly good between the velvety texture, rich fruit and firm structure; it shows well now, but will improve considerably with age. Drinking Window 2024 - 2039." 

Wine Advocate, 92-94 Points 

Another real success is the 2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Boudots, a lovely wine bursting with notes of plums, wild berries, exotic spices, peonies and blood orange. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and concentrated, it's elegantly fleshy, with lively acids, melting tannins and a penetrating finish. Jean-Nicolas Méo began picking on September 13, observing that "everything was ripe at once this year," and that alcohol levels—for the most part, around 14%—were a little higher than he would have wished for. Yet the wines in the glass are hard to fault: Méo excelled in 2018, and his 2019s are even more structurally refined and vibrant. As I've written before, Méo's wines see quite a long élevage, and they can often be a little structural and introverted in the fall following the vintage, but these 2019s, just like the 2018s at the same stage last year, were remarkably open for inspection. Displaying superb concentration and mid-palate amplitude without any particular perception of heaviness, I found much to admire; and, in summation, this is a very fine portfolio that, when taken as a set, appears to match or surpass what was achieved here in 2018." 

Vinous, 91-93 Points 

"The 2019 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Boudots 1er Cru needed a lot of aeration before it finally graced me with its presence. There is no stem addition in this vintage as there has been in previous years. It has a very well-defined bouquet even though it feels "aloof" at the moment, presenting sous-bois-infused black fruit and traces of iodine. The palate is well balanced with a slightly lactic, licorice-tinged entry. A precocious Les Boudots in the making. There is firm structure, good grip and a countervailing sorbet-like zip on the finish. This has all the components of a very fine Nuits Saint-Georges, but it will require cellaring." 

Burghound, 90-93 Points 

"This wine is tough to read in its present condition as the very toasty nose is firmly reduced. Moreover, the wood toast extends to the velvety and sappy palate as well that is both warm and somewhat flat. This is normally one of my favorite wines in the Méo portfolio but it's very awkward and thus my range offers the benefit of the doubt. I will try to taste it next year once it is in bottle to provide an updated perspective. *Burghound Outstanding!*
