Fifty per cent of Leroux’s 2019 Gevrey hails from 50-year-old vines in Les Seuvrées (bordering Morey) with the northern, limestone-rich La Justice and some old-vines in Les Jeunes Rois (on the Brochon side of the appellation) completing the picture.

There’s no doubt the Jeunes Rois fruit has brought a greater dimension to this cuvée, and we’re glad Leroux decided to keep it in the blend (he has been tempted to bottle this parcel as a separate cuvée). Each parcel was vinified separately before blending, almost all the fruit was de-stemmed this year, and the wine was aged in 600-litre and 225-litre barrels (20% new).

Lovely depth for a village wine, this is very 'Gevrey', with a dark fruit character, lots of spice, more plum than cherry and an earthy, savoury note. On the palate there are firm tannins and a satisfying length. Produced from the lieux-dits of Les Seuvrées and La Justice, among others, there were 10% whole clusters fermented on native yeasts and aged for two winters in cask (20% new). - Decanter Magazine
