Decanter, November 2018
Vincent Morey owns most of this premier cru, but it's good to see Benjamin Leroux working his magic on a little of what's left.

Closer to the tautness and precision of a Puligny premier cru than many Chassagnes, this is delightfully pure, focussed and stony, with subtle toast and beeswax notes and a chalky frisson on the finish.

Penetrating and bone-dry but not at all lacking in texture; offers surprising breadth and a flavor of lime zest complicated by salty minerality. Best today on the finish but showing less personality and lift than the Abbaye de Morgeot. The two wines are quite different in personality, with this one, from higher on the hillside, lower in acidity (just 3.2 grams per liter, according to Leroux) but higher in alcohol. (13.1% alcohol) -- Stephen Tanzer

Pale colour. A little toasty touch to the nose while the fruit remains discreet, this has a fine graceful elegance, a touch of muscatty ripeness perhaps at the finish, but again a really fine boned style. Tasted: November...   Pale colour.
