Goedhuis, December 2019
A combination of 3 different vineyards, Veroilles, Chatelots and Charmes, this is a lovely expression of Chambolle Musigny. The attack is all graceful red fruit flavours. The tannins have a fine-grained texture and there is a light freshness. The finish evolves to reveal notes of mocha which give a balancing richness to the acidity.
Burghound, April 2020,
A subtle touch of wood can be found on the softly spicy aromas of floral-inflected red and dark pinot scents. The supple, delicious and refined middle weight flavors exude a discreet bead of minerality on the dusty and slightly drying but not really short finish. Drink 2025+
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.
The wines of Chambolle Musigny are like no other. They can be superbly delicate, yet mindblowingly complex. Of all the northern Burgundy appellations, they are the most ethereal, and as a result the most feminine. Most of the Chambolle Musigny vineyard area is encompassed in its Village and Premier Cru appellations including the robust Beaux Bruns, the splendidly mineral Le Cras and the poised yet powerful Les Amoureuses. It produces only two Grand Crus - the round and rich Bonnes Mares which it shares with Morey St. Dénis, as well as what could be described as the Stradivarius of grand crus, Musigny.
