Cork. In 2014 Leroux won the contract to work with two parcels of Vosne. Both have 60 year old vines and both lie in the north side of the village: a parcel in Maizières (Basses) that spans the Vosne-Flagey border and one in Les Violettes that lies entirely within the boundaries of Flagey-Echézeaux, bordering the Clos Vougeot. Both parcels are planted to Pinot Fin and the viticulture is organic. This year, Leroux has added a parcel of Les Raviolles to the roster. Making up a quarter of the blend, Les Raviolles lies under the northern 1er crus of Nuits-St-Georges. This is absolute class: sweet, silky and layered with plush, crushed ripe red fruit, violet and Asian spice notes. It has beautifully fine tannins and the use of 70% whole bunches brings a sappy, spicy freshness. Everything we love about the best 2015 reds can be tasted in this wine.
Outstanding Top Value. 'There is enough wood to warrant mentioning surrounding the super-spicy aromas of black cherry, raspberry, violet and Asian-style tea. The suave, rich and impressively concentrated medium-bodied flavors also deliver fine length and excellent complexity on the even more tightly wound, firm, serious and youthfully austere finale. This is an excellent Vosne villages and highly recommended. " 89-92 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound issue 66
