Importer Note:


Cork. A change in tact and style this year as Leroux is no longer working with the rare parcel of Pinot Noir in En Charlemagne. Instead, the lion’s share of this year’s wine comes from Le Corton, at the top of the hill, directly above the grand crus of Clos du Roi and Renardes. Chardonnay vines planted in this white marl terroir are classified as Corton-Charlemagne and Pinot vines as Corton grand cru. Once again, however, Leroux has blended in the fruit from a beautiful parcel of old vines in Les Bressandes, adding substance to his spicy, high-toned Le Corton fruit.  The vines vary in age from roughly 20 to 70 years and the élevage included 30% new oak and 50% whole bunches. As always, this is a fabulous value for its level and will be something very special with age.


“A discreet but not invisible application of wood frames the pronounced floral-suffused aromas of both red and dark berries along with plenty of earth, game and forest floor scents. There is excellent size, weight and power to the solidly concentrated broad-shouldered flavors that deliver fine length on the somewhat toasty finale. My sense is that the wood will ultimately be successfully integrated but it's not subtle today.” 90-93 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound issue 66
