Benjamin Leroux Puligny Montrachet 2011

94 Our Score
(4/2018) This seven-year-old Puligny-Montrachet from superstar winemaker Benjamin Leroux is drinking brilliantly. With a deliciously dense and creamy mouthfeel, this perfectly aged white Burgundy offers tremendous minerality and flavor along with a finish that goes on and on and on. We love the mature fruit flavors of baked apple, honey-glazed pear and preserved lemon along with salted Marcona almond, citrus blossom, chalk and rocky-clay earth tones. The acidity is brisk and balancing, resulting in a wine that will work well at the table with anything from roast chicken to grilled salmon. Sourced from three different vineyards, averaging 40 years of age, Leroux used only indigenous yeasts for fermentation before aging in 300-liter barrels, 15% of which were new. It is totally drinkable now, especially with a good decanting, and will keep nicely for another 5-7 years.

Benjamin Leroux "Murgers des Dents de Chien" St. Aubin 1 er Cru Blanc 2011

Special close-out pricing on this ready-to-drink 1er Cru white Burgundy from Benjamin Leroux!
92+ Our Score
(5/2018) Winemaker Benjamin Leroux is part of a new wave of Burgundian wine makers crafting wine in their own unique style in an area ruled by tradition. The style of this wine focuses on the purity of the fruit and the intense minerality of the "Les Murgers des Dents de Chien" premier cru vineyard. Aged in only 15% new oak, well below the average for Premier Cru Chardonnay in the region, and bottled with screw-caps to avoid corked bottles, this 2011 bottling is a great example of how high quality white Burgundies can age 5-10+ years.

Benjamin Leroux Bourgogne Blanc 2011

91 Our Score
(5/2018) In his 2013 review of this beautiful white Burgundy from the talented Benjamin Leroux, Antonio Galloni wrote "there is a lot to look forward to, especially at this level." Five years later, after being perfectly cellared in the temperature controlled warehouse of our distributor, it is now starting to sing. This is not simple Bourgogne Blanc. This gem is sourced from select parcels in the villages of Meurault and Puligny. Showing the richness of Meursault with the brightness, minerality and charm of Puligny, this delightful wine will make a great accompaniment to your lunch or dinner table, especially if roasted chicken with creamy wild mushrooms or butter poached shellfish are on the menu!

Heritiers de Comte Lafon Macon-Milly-Lamartine 2011

90+ Our Score
(5/2019) What a wonderful surprise! While attending a recent warehouse sale tasting, where over 200 wines were open for sampling, we came across the brilliant Chardonnays from famed Meursault vigneron Dominique Lafon's Macon project - "Les Heritiers du Comte Lafon." The first wine was a 2011 Macon-Milly-Lamartine. "It's probably dead" we thought, but let's give it a taste, and it tasted pretty darn good. We revisited the wine 3 and 5 days later and to our amazement, it just kept getting better. We were so impressed, we bought it all. So, here we are, offering an eight-year-old White Burgundy from one of the true masters of the category, meant to sell for $28, at a close-out price of just $15.99. Crazy.
