Tasting Notes

    The 2017 Chambertin Grand Cru has a tight-lipped bouquet that demands coaxing from the glass; the 80% whole bunches imparts captivating undergrowth/damp moss aromas that filter through the black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied and quite dense, with grippy tannin and a light espresso note. I find the Mazis-Chambertin has a little more grace on the finish by direct comparison. A bit of a curmudgeon, this will benefit from four or five years in bottle. 2023 - 2045

    The Leroux parcel is located in the heart of Chambertin and is farmed biodynamically. It's a very poised, precise wine made with two-thirds whole bunches and 40% new wood. It's balanced and focussed, with effortless concentration and a bright, mineral-edged finish. Drinking Window 2025 – 2032.

    Deep crimson. Sweet, ripe and intensely fruited on the nose. A hint of vanilla over crushed strawberries laced with pepper. Spicy too. Cool customer, less open on the palate. Pure, cool and silky on the palate. Incredible finesse already and so much more to come. Soaring beauty even if not yet expressive. Drink 2027-2045.

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

Chambertin

Gevrey Chambertin lies well to the north of the Cote de Nuits. It has no less than 9 grand cru vineyards and the most famous of these is Chambertin. Often considered the greatest of all red Burgundies for its complexity, power and intensity, Chambertin's fine wines are unsurprisingly rare and are priced accordingly. They also need years to develop to their full potential, but are undoubtedly worth the wait.
