Importer Note:


The 3.60-hectare Les Baudines vineyard sits up high on the slope, near the tree line on the south-western border of Chassagne. It’s naturally a very cool site with mostly white clay soils and offers a terroir that perfectly suits Leroux’s desire to produce cool, fine-boned Chassagne. From vines planted around 1980, this is a deliciously complex and racy white Burgundy with a superb balance of pulp-rich, compact fruit and ‘mineral steel’ (to borrow Jasper Morris’ phrase).


“Here too there is just enough wood toast present to remark upon framing the cool and relatively restrained nose of citrus, apple and mineral-reduction aromas. There is a bit better intensity and vibrancy to the markedly more mineral-driven flavors that are rich but focused and particularly so on the lingering if slightly warm finish where a hint of lemon zest emerges.” 90-92 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound issue 67


“Deeply pitched aromas of very ripe stone fruits, clove and butter. Comes across as fatter and slightly more alcoholic than the Abbaye de Morgeot but it's also less forthcoming today, with its fruit in the background. Finishes dry but persistent, with lingering spices.” 89-92 points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com
