Importer Note:

Screwcap. 2015 represents yet another miserly crop for Leroux’s Volnay villages—just five barrels were made in 2015. Quality, however, is off the charts—not least because around 50% of the wine is actually declassified 1er Cru. This year the 1er cru sites: La Gigotte, Les Mitans and Les Santenots, provide the heavyweight material, with the balance coming from the villages Les Famines and La Gigotte (there is both 1er and village parcels in this terroir). With zero new oak and made from entirely destemmed fruit, the ’15 is a super pure, highly perfumed Volnay that tastes every bit the 1er cru. Satin textured with dark cherry fruit, flecked with violet and a gentle lick of ripe, tender tannin; this is Volnay villages of the highest order. 

Outstanding Top Value. “An attractively layered if not particularly elegant nose offers up pungently earthy aromas of red pinot fruit, violet and game. There is better refinement to the sleek middle weight flavors that are shaped by relatively fine-grained tannins on the saline, dusty and well-balanced finale. The contribution of the 1er proportion is evident and overall this is an especially good Volnay villages.” 89-91 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound issue 66
