Benjamin Leroux Bourgogne Rouge 2018 (1.5L)

$160.00

Very complex, remarkably so at this level. Soaring bouquet of blueberry, creamy oak, cranberry, blood plum, raspberry and hedgerow fruits. Almost full bodied, generous and solid, with driving ripe tannins, waves of acidity and subtle spice and oak notes. Impossible to not be impressed and exceptional value. Years and years of drinking pleasure. Waters Wine Co.

This year’s blend includes a quarter of declassified villages-level wine from St-Romain and Monthélie. The Bourgogne-level fruit is drawn mostly from the excellent Maison Dieu in Pommard, Les Mont Pellans in Meursault, some Estate vines in Volnay and even a little contribution from Vosne-Romanée (Croix Blanches). The remaining 25% comes from the Hautes-Côtes de Nuits above Vosne-Romanée.

The élevage took place in 22-hectolitre Grenier cask supported by a few 228-litre Burgundian pièce. There was no new oak used, and the grapes were entirely de-stemmed. But these are details; the most important thing to know is that it’s a superb wine for its level—deep and generous, remarkably rich for Bourgogne (with dark cherry, mocha, iodine notes) and a spicy, dark chocolate noted close.

Inviting and gorgeous sweet dark-red fruit. Rich and savoury at the same time. Fantastic for a Bourgogne – Leroux thinks Bourgogne and village wines are great in 2018. A little bit of peppery spice, fine tannins and wonderful but not overripe fruit. Gently spiced and chewy on the finish. Should be GV! Julia Harding, Jancisrobinson.com”
