Description

Beautiful white burgundy from the wine whizz kid Benjamin Leroux, with lots of fine, smoky-toasty, hazelnut style.
Jane MacQuitty, The Times (May 2021)

A blend of wines from the Hautes-Cotes de Beaune and outlying vineyards around Meursault put together with great skill by this new-generation negociant. Neat, fresh and pure. Creamy texture with a slice of lemon. Just the ticket. The only disadvantage of the wine is that you know it would have cost half as much quite recently. It's also at its peak at the moment. Not for the cellar.
Jancis Robinson MW, ft.com (March 2021)

As always, this is a very superior generic white Burgundy, based on vineyards in the Hautes Côtes (where the quality is superb in 2018) and Côte d’Or vineyards around Meursault. The beautiful ripeness of the Hautes Côtes gives a lemon and stone-fruit character, and good acidity; while the Meursault component is lush and joyous.
