    Benjamin Leroux Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Baudines 2018 vintage was raised in large format oak ovals, with a small (20%) portion raised in new barrel. It’s an outstanding example of this terroir—not necessarily typical, much more layered and creamy, with a long, punchy, floral close. Delicious. I would go as far as to say that it’s one of the finest examples of this site we have shipped. It may have been disjointed early days from barrel, but it certainly isn’t today!

    The 3.6-hectare Les Baudines vineyard sits up high on the slope, near the tree line on the southwestern border of Chassagne. Les Baudines is essentially a continuation of Embazées but from vines higher on the hillside and therefore on soil with a higher limestone content. It’s a very cool site with mostly white clay soils, and offers a terroir that is perfectly suited to Leroux’s desire to produce fine-boned Chassagne. Leroux’s vines were planted in the 1980s.

    “Pretty pale fresh colour, this is lighter than Embazées but finer on the nose, then fleshes out significantly on the palate with the wood showing a little. Disjointed today but should refine.” Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
