Description

The two core parcels here, Maizières Basses and Les Violettes, are both organically farmed plots with 60-year-old Pinot Fin vines. Both also lie on the Flagey side of the village, close to Clos Vougeot. The fruit from both of these vineyards was fermented entirely as whole bunches, while the harvest from a third parcel, Aux Raviolles, was entirely destemmed. Aux Raviolles lies at the opposite end of Vosne, under the northern 1er Crus of Nuits-Saint-Georges. From 2019 Leroux will be working with three hectares in Vosne and his understanding of the village is really starting to shine through. This is just a beautiful wine: fine, pure and juicy with a silky, seductive mouthfeel and good structure on the finish.

 “A lovely panoply of Vosne-style spice elements add breadth to the violet, red cherry and sandalwood-scented nose. The textured, caressing and velvety medium weight flavors possess a lovely richness that contrasts somewhat with the serious and firm finale. This is a very fine villages and worth checking out.” 89-91 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound, Issue 75

“Ben Leroux has produced a series of textbook wines in 2017, with clear differences between the terroirs and villages. This sees two-thirds whole-bunch fruit – the portion that comes from the Aux Ravioles lieu-dit close to the border with Nuits-St-Georges is destemmed – and is matured in one-third new oak. It’s brimming with sappy, juicy red berry flavours and beguiling sweetness.” 92 points, Tim Atkin MW, Decanter
