2020 Benjamin Leroux Volnay

$189.00

Place: Volnay - Burgundy, France

Variety: Pinot Noir

Farming: Biodynamic

Words from the importer, Bibendum Wine Co

This year’s blend was drawn from La Gigotte and Le Famines, both abutting the 1er Cru belt that lies below the village between Les Mitans and the D974. To this fruit, some declassified 1er Cru from Leroux’s vines in La Gigotte, Mitans and Santenots was added. There was just a little whole bunch this year (mainly from the Gigotte parcel) with Leroux picking out the best-looking bunches at the sorting table. There’s no denying that Leroux is a master of this village and once again this is a terrific release.

Words from Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

There is a little declassified 1er cru in the blend. Attractive mid purple, the nose is quite restrained but has retained freshness to the fruit, good tannins which are not too dry and a classy long red fruit behind with some floral touches too.
