Tasting Notes

  • BURG

    Burghound, April 2015,
    Score: 90-93

    This is the first wine to display any really appreciable amount of wood and there is plenty of it though not so much that it completely dominates the aromas of plum, spice and soft floral scents. There is excellent richness to the relatively full-bodied flavors that possess fine volume and punch before concluding in a slightly woody finish. The oak may very well integrate in time but stylistically speaking, this is distinctly different from the other wines in the range. Drink 2024+

  • ST

    Stephen Tanzer, November 2014,
    Score: 91-94

    (one-third vendange entier; not racked): Good dark red. Aromas of licorice, violet, smoke, minerals and tobacco. Tighter and livelier than the Suchots despite the fact that this parcel in the climat Les Vignes Blanche is essentially an extension of the same block of vines. Shows sneaky minerality to its flavors of purple fruits and violet pastille. The rising finish really titillates the taste buds. Boasts excellent tensile strength. Leroux told me he may not bottle this wine until May. Drink 2024-2036

Producer

Benjamin Leroux

Following fifteen years as winemaker at Comte Armand, Benjamin Leroux is now amongst an elite band of specialist micro-négociants setting up in the Côte D’Or. Based in Beaune, Benjamin uses his network of contacts to source only the very best fruit and, where he has contracts, likes to advise on vineyard practices to make sure that the raw material is of the highest quality. He makes wines from a broad and diverse selection of appellations, but all show a true connection to their origins.

Region

Côte de Nuits-Villages

This communal appellation covers the vineyards of Fixin, Brochon, Premeaux, Comblanchien, and Corgoloin. Spread along the length of the Cotes de Nuits the wines of the different communes are, unsurprisingly, varied, reflecting a range of different exposures and nuances of soild type. The vast majority of production is red, with just a smattering of Chardonnay grown. The reds can offer very good value from the better producers.
