2016 Benjamin Leroux Clos St. Denis (750ml)

SKU: 31965
"98 out of 100...The 2016 Clos-Saint-Denis Grand Cru from Leroux stands as one of the finest bottled wines that I have tasted from this producer. It offers copious red and blue fruit on the nose - redcurrant jam, blueberry and fleeting cassis aromas, very well defined with a floral component more conspicuous than its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin. This delivers the weight and intensity you expect from a Grand Cru, with countervailing finesse and refinement that can only derive from the most propitious terroirs. Extremely long on the sorbet-like finish with hints of cracked black pepper, such is the crystalline nature of this wine that you could broach a bottle now and not be overcome with guilt. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2016 tasting." - Neal Martin, Vinous.com
