2018 Meursault, Benjamin Leroux in gift box

Description

This cuvée is now made entirely from domaine vineyards scattered around the appellation, including Criots, Sous la Velle, Millerands, Moulin Landin and Bois de Blagny. A perfect combination of rich fruit, power and saline minerals, this is classic Meursault but with Ben’s hallmark purity and freshness. Drink 2021-2026.

"If you haven’t discovered Benjamin Leroux’s wines yet, I wholeheartedly recommend starting with this one. It has delicious notes of ripe stone-fruit, rich vanilla and toast, with refreshing acidity; it bursts with passionfruit, pear, mineral and vanilla. Unusually for the region, this is bottled with a screwcap; the wine retains a freshness that balances out the lush fruit and oak. This is a perfect wine to enjoy in the summer: it’s fantastic with whole roast salmon, or simply on its own, with a good book in the sun."

Henrietta Gullifer, Wine & Spirits Advisor, Berry Bros. & Rudd (June 2021)

Lower slopes, eg Les Criots, Au Moulin Landin, Les Millerands, Au Village (all mainly clay) and some from Le Bois de Blagny (calcareous) to add tension. 100% domaine vines. A big cuvée – 12,000 bottles. Fermented and aged in a 12-hl foudre plus 600- and 300- and 228-litre barrels.

Deep, creamy spicy nose. There’s a generosity here and quite a bit of oak sweetness. An easy drinker with just enough acidity for shape. Lots of spice on the creamy finish. Gentle and generous but harmonious.

Drink 2020 - 2024
