2015 Benjamin Leroux Chambolle Musigny
2015 Benjamin Leroux • Chambolle Musigny Villages
The 2015 Chambolle Musigny Villages is a mix of white and red soils, whereas Leroux told me that it used to lean towards the former. There is a slight earthiness on the nose, fine definition if not quite the harmony of the Gevrey-Chambertin at the moment. The palate is ripe and generous on the entry, here more cohesion with red cherry, brown spices and a touch of citrus fruit on the well-defined and focused finish. This is one of Leroux's best village crus in the making. Drink 2018-2027

Benjamin Leroux 2015 Chambolle-Musigny
(mostly vendange entier; racked): Moderately saturated medium red. A sexy note of reduction to the aromas of raspberry, coffee, mocha and game. Lush but shapely on the palate, with silky red berry and spice flavors energized by lively minerality. Finishes with fine-grained tannins.

Maison Benjamin Leroux 2015 Chambolle-Musigny
Tasting note: An exuberantly spicy nose combines ripe yet cool and relatively high-toned aromas of red cherry, pomegranate and lilac. The refined, focused, intense and beautifully delineated flavors deliver fine length on the presently tightly wound and stony finale. This is very Chambolle in style.
