Benjamin Leroux Chambolle Musigny 2015

It’s an extroverted, perfumed Chambolle with plenty of fruit (we found pomegranate and white cherry in the mix) and a seductive texture.

This wine comes from a quality, single old vine parcel of Les Véroilles, the highest vineyard in Chambolle, sitting well above Bonnes Mares. Part of this vineyard, just over half a hectare, was promoted to 1er Cru in 1987 and this part is a monopole of Domaine Ghislaine Barthod. The villages section of the vineyard has a slightly deeper soil, yet remains rocky, with white marl, terres blanches, and very little topsoil before the rock. From vines dating back to 1955, Leroux has used 60% whole bunches in 2015 and has then raised the wine in 20% new oak. It’s an extroverted, perfumed Chambolle with plenty of fruit (we found pomegranate and white cherry in the mix) and a seductive texture. The parcel’s chalky subsoil imprints itself on the wine’s long, laser guided finish.
