Benjamin Leroux Bourgogne Blanc 2018

$69.99

A mini-Meursault, this is also the first Leroux Bourgogne drawn almost entirely from Estate fruit (about 90%). The vineyards are Les Millerands, Sous la Velle and Les Belles Côtes, with each parcel well sited on the Côte. Unlike the vast majority of Bourgogne—which typically hails from the plains below the D974—Leroux’s vines are grown on limestone-rich terroirs above the main road. The Meursault fruit was supplemented with some 10% from the Hautes-Côtes this year. It was mostly raised in 12-hectolitre foudres for 12 months before finishing its élevage in stainless steel for four months. As always, this punches well above its weight. There’s terrific generosity but it’s also matched by sappy, juicy drive and length. 

"Cool feel to the wine with green melon and white peach, a subtle mint and floral perfume, and distinct creamy almond character. It’s silky and glossy, but fresh, the almond character most pleasant, subtle powdery texture, and a clean finish of good length. It’s polished, but stylish, and lovely to drink." - Gary Walsh, Wine Front
