Last of the Red Hot Burgundy Lovers

Back to Greek Wines tomorrow, but for tonight, I had the last of my four prized Louis Jadot 2015 burgundies.

The Vacuvin is now put away, as I opened the last of the sample bottles from a recent Jadot tasting: Jadot Nuits-Saint-Georges "Les Boudots" 2015.
Red cherry, and ripe raspberries on the nose with a bit of, daisies. Richer earth terroir than the last three tastings, moist soil with plenty of organics, plenty of red raspberry, bing cherry, and cassis. Not the dairy element like 
the last few, but not missing it....there's a hint of lemon candy pushing it's bright fruity finish to the end. Save it if you want, but you don't need to. The tannins are mild, and the fruit uncomplicated. Delicious. I'm having this with Chicken Burgers with aromatics (onion, garlic parsley), duck bacon, and sharp vermont cheddar on a buttermilk biscuit, but this would be fine with any poultry, or fuller flavored fish.
