2018, Maison Benjamin Leroux, BLAGNY 1er Cru "La Pièce sous le Bois"

$66
Rich with lovely ripe fruit. Pleasing long finish. V.GD/EXC. P Maude 16/07/19

13 barrels from a modest yield of 35 hl/ha. Dense dark colour, with black fruit in evidence but this does not smell or taste over-ripe. The fruit is very dense for this site and with good length. Black fruit but correctly ripe. Fine long finish. **** 90-92 Jasper Morris MW

The structured palate is medium-bodied with crunchy red fruit, good grip and a pretty, spicy, white-pepper-tinged finish that oddly reminds me of a fine Côte-Rôtie! Very, very delicious. 89-91 Neal Martin, Vinous.
