2017 Vosne-Romanée, Benjamin Leroux in gift box

Description

The fruit here comes from Maizières-Basses and some Les Violettes to the north of the appellation (actually in Flagey) and Raviolles at the southern end, bordered south and west by Nuits-St Georges. The contrasting styles combine for a textbook Vosne, suave and rich, abetted by 50 percent whole-bunch. Drink 2020-2024.

The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Village, one of Leroux’s largest cuvées at 31 barrels, a large proportion sourced from Flagey-Echézeaux, has a fragrant bouquet with white flowers complementing the red cherry and crushed strawberry fruit. The medium-bodied palate displays supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity, silky-smooth texture and a tart red cherry and orange peel finish that is quite spicy on the aftertaste. Good potential.

Drink 2021 - 2033

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.

Drink 2020 - 2027

Mid to deep crimson. Spicy and almost a touch exotic on the nose. And a sweetness of spice and dark red fruit. Chewy and creamy on the palate. Generous in fruit and light in structure but all making a whole. Pure and gentle but persistent.

Drink 2022 - 2028
