Product Description

Leroux did not make a Volnay Les Mitans 1er in 2011 and instead, he reclassified and blended it with some 1er Cru Les Pitures to make, simply, a Volnay 1er Cru. From 2012 Benjamin will be working with a new (and improved!) source of Les Mitans and you can look forward to a blinder cuvée from this 1er Cru next year. A seldom seen vineyard in Australia, Les Pitures sits just north of the village itself, next to the 1er Crus of Clos des Ducs and above Fremiets. Here, near the Pommard border, the soil is very stony and the incline is very steep. It's a site that accentuates finesse over structure. Like any Volnay that carries the Leroux name, this is a wonderful example. Volnay has always been close to Leroux's heart and it shows in the lifted perfume, in the silky, pure fruit and in the finesse of this wine. A beautiful Volnay.
"A slightly more elegant nose speaks of pure and airy red currant, wet stone and discreet spice nuances. There is also a bit more volume and richness as well as more evident minerality to the intense yet refined middle weight flavors that possess a lovely mouth feel, all wrapped in a balanced finish that offers good if not exceptional depth and length.",
