Importer Note:


Cork. This is one of the Côte d’Or’s least tasted Grand Cru vineyards thanks to its small size (at 6.6 hectares it is about 1/3 of the size of Clos de la Roche) and fragmented ownership - there are sixteen owners who mostly have tiny holdings. It is, nonetheless, a vineyard capable of producing remarkable, hedonistic wines of tremendous finesse. For a number of years, Leroux has been making an outstanding example of this grand cru from a 50+ year old parcel of vines (planted in 1962) smack bang in the heart of the vineyard, in the original Clos Saint Denis lieu-dit. This 0.13 hectare parcel has always been managed organically, never having seen any herbicides or pesticides. As per last year, this was entirely destemmed and aged in 1/3 new barrels. Leroux always refers to this grand cru as “mon chouchou”. In other words, his favourite (year in, year out). Enough said. 


“An exuberantly, indeed gorgeously spicy nose features notes of liqueur-like red berries and soft floral nuances, all of which are trimmed in subtle wood nuances. The rich and relatively full-bodied flavors remain refined and graceful while delivering fine length on the well-balanced and sophisticated finish that isn't quite as complex.” 91-94 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound issue 66


“The 2015 Clos St Denis Grand Cru has an upfront, quite bold bouquet with vibrant red berry fruit, crushed strawberries, orange sorbet and a touch of earl grey. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannin, well-judged acidity, fleshy and quite opulent towards the pure finish. This is destined to a gorgeous Clos Saint-Denis from Benjamin Leroux, one of the best from his comprehensive range of 2015s. Queue up for this...and don't push in.” 94-96 points, Neal Martin, Wine Advocate #228
