Benjamin Leroux Chambolle Musigny Les Amoureuses 1er Cru 2015 1500ml
Burghound 92-94 Points "A strikingly spicy and perfumed liqueur-like nose displays aromas of black berries, sandalwood, tea and plenty of floral elements. There is first-rate concentration to the impressively rich and beguilingly textured flavors that brim with both dry extract and minerality on the complex and highly persistent finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth. (AM)"
Bottled in magnum only. From 0.06 hectares of Les Amoureuses, planted in 1972, this is Leroux's smallest parcel. There are so few magnums available that we shouldn't even be writing notes! As has become the custom, Leroux vinifies this wine without any new oak and with only destemmed fruit. Striking is the word that springs to mind although this does not begin to do the wine justice!
