Notes from Becky Wasserman & Co:

Charles Lachaux started his micro-négoce because of Aligoté. The Arnoux family has Aligoté and used to bottle it, but at some point it was deemed unworthy, and the grapes were sold off to négociants. Charles wanted to vinify those grapes again. So Charles started a micro-négoce to purchase the grapes from the domaine instead...Acquaintances of Charles who had recently taken over domaines from their parents were pouring their hearts and sweat into conscientious viticulture. They were sad to see their grapes go to much larger négociants where they would be blended into large cuvées. When they heard that Charles had started a négoce, they offered him some.  Located at the very top of Boudots, at the appellation's limit.

From William Kelley: 

Notions of plums, smoky berry fruit, rich spices and loamy soil introduce the 2020 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Boudots, a medium to full-bodied, lively and concentrated wine framed by powdery tannins that assert themselves on the saline finish.
