Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2015

    Classy, poised and graceful, are three words which encapsulate this wine. Beautifully vibrant currant fruits, the tannins are fully developed, yet not overpowering. It has a crystalline fruit purity, with a bright freshness. Perfectly balanced and very long.

    Score: 91-93

    The 2014 Clos St Denis Grand Cru has a very refined, very cohesive, elegant bouquet with red cherry, wild strawberry and rose petals - wonderful. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin on the entry, a thickly layered Clos Saint Denis with dense, ripe raspberry and cranberry fruit, though it just needs a little more detail on the finish if he wants to "strut" like the Amoureuses. Drink 2018-2035

    Red, lucid, lifted and pure. A much more vertical structure. It is crisp and vivacious. Mineral and stoney on the finish. Drink from 2020

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.
