2015 Benjamin Leroux Gevrey-Chambertin 375ML
The 2015 village blend was drawn from two vineyards – the 50 year old vines of Les Seuvrées (bordering Morey), makes up 65% of the blend while the balance comes from the northern, limestone-rich site of La Justice. Each parcel was vinified separately before blending after the malolactic. Just 15% new oak here, and 20% whole bunches.
It’s a seductive, layered, Gevrey loaded, with sweet, fresh, spicy fruit that builds to a sappy, delicious finish. Yes please. Outstanding Top Value "A relatively pretty nose combines notes of red currant, pomegranate, pinot spice and soft earth nuances. There is both fine energy and delineation to the caressing middle weight flavors that immediately tighten up on the bitter pit fruit-inflected finish. This excellent Gevrey villages should be approachable on the younger side but clearly has the stuff to reward up to a decade of cellaring." – 89-91 points, Allen Meadows
