Leroux now controls two hectares in Vosne, and the 2019 villages wine benefited from the fruit of five separate lieux-dits. Importantly, these vineyards are home to excellent vine stock—almost exclusively old selections of Pinot Fin. From north to south: Maizières Basses (organically farmed with 60-year-old Pinot Fin vines) lies on the Flagey side of the village close to Clos de Vougeot; there’s a small portion of Les Violettes this year; then there’s Leroux’s new parcel of old-vine Pinot Fin in Genaivrières sitting in the centre, close the village (just beneath those of Domaine Leroy); and finally there are Les Jacquines and Au-dessus de la Rivière, which both lie under the northern 1er Crus of Nuits-Saint-Georges.

Each parcel was vinified separately. The 45% whole-bunch quota derives mostly from the two northern parcels. This is just a stunning example of Vosne village; it’s both opulent and full of energy.

The new barrel component has been racked. The colour is a fresh mid purple, with lots of energy on the nose, and class too, with a very refined raspberry fruit, and a super succulent, but refined feel throughout, and a lifted finish. Really well balanced. - Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
