2019 Benjamin Leroux, Meursault, Blanc 6x75cl

JM89-92
"...Medium lemon colour, this has a svelte soft and appealing fruit, with enough tension behind to hold up, and a very long finish. Agreeable lemon fruit throughout, but this is taking on the weight of classic Meursault." Jasper Morris MW, 10/22, 89-92 pts.

2020 Benjamin Leroux, Auxey-Duresses, Blanc 6x75cl

JM89-92VM87-89
Benjamin has been a good friend of ours since his days at Comte Armand, and his powerful, impressive winemaking style shines through in 2020 where concentration meets with backbone and guile in the... Volnay commune. He remembers his first ever visit to the UK back in 1999 where he spent some time staying with Richard Wheeler (Johnny's father, sadly passed away last year), memorable not least for the friendly dispute regarding the relative merits of local Mersea native Oysters versus their French counterparts! Benjamin’s Volnay 1er Cru Les Mitans reflects the greatest attributes of this excellent vintage. Density, richness and structure are all to the fore in a cuvée which gets better with every passing vintage. With demand (and therefore prices) for St Aubin skyrocketing in recent years, Auxey-Duresses has replaced it as one of the best sources of value whites with more than a passing resemblance to the hallowed communes on the other side of the hill. Once again, Benjamin's hand is plain to see through this wonderfully fresh white of great textural interest - one to drink over the next 3 to 5 years, and a brilliant alternative to the classic styles.

2020 Domaine Fernand Lecheneaut, Morey-Saint-Denis, Rouge 12x75cl

JM89-92
Offered by Mr.Wheeler for only the third vintage and one of the most exciting recent additions to our portfolio, Philippe and Vincent Lécheneaut’s ten-hectare estate in Nuits-St-Georges was... created by their father, Fernand Lécheneaut in the 1980s. An extensive range of the finest villages of the Côte de Nuits is produced here; we have picked what we think are the best in 2020 - perfect expressions of pinot noir – rich, sumptuous and elegant, these are modern wines made with minimum intervention that combine purity of fruit with stunning terroir expression. From the Pierre Virant sector of Morey comes this delicious, blueberry-scented, richly-fruited blockbuster cuvée. Opulent with excellent energy and plenty of spicy character, this is a particularly approachable village Morey and will be drinking beautifully in 3 to 5 years.
