Peter Maude Fine Wines
2018, Maison Benjamin Leroux, GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN Village
The lieux-dits Les Seuvrées, La Justice, Billard, and Le Fourneau all contribute grapes for this cuvée. 10% fermented as whole clusters give just a touch of well-integrated menthol character, but there is a perfect purity of rose-scented cherry fruit here and a texture that balances elegance and traditional Gevrey backbone. The tannins are firm, and the wine retains admirable freshness for the vintage. This is a marvelous village-level Gevrey. 94/100 Charles Curtis MW, Decanter.
