“From Fleurieres, Herbues and Aux Sts Jacques, bright crimson purple, and not too ripe in fruit profile, this has an excellent structure with just the right tannins and correct acidity. All in deep red fruit, not too plummy, a balanced and consistent overall Nuits-St-Georges.” 90-92 points, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
Natural cork. This year marks the long-awaited return of Leroux’s Nuits-Saint-Georges wines to our offer (the 1er Cru Aux Boudots is offered below). In generous years, Leroux can vinify four Nuits-Saint-Georges wines: this blend of climats, a villages lieu-dit Les Allots and two 1er Cru wines from Aux Thorey and Les Boudots. This year’s blend is a roughly equal split between Aux St. Jacques and Aux Herbues on the Vosne border, and a parcel in the northern part of Fleurières, just south of the town. It should come as no surprise that Leroux’s Nuits taste nothing like the classic rugged stereotype. Instead, you can expect the kind of supple elegance and poise this grower brings to all his wines.
