Bottled in magnum only. 15 magnums only. From 0.06 hectares of Les Amoureuses, planted in 1972, this is Leroux’s smallest parcel. There are so few magnums available that we shouldn’t even be writing notes! As has become the custom, Leroux vinifies this wine in a one year old barrel and with only destemmed fruit.
' ♥ Outstanding. An overtly floral and exceptionally pretty nose is elegant, airy and admirably pure with plenty of spice elements adding breadth to the essence of red currant aromas that are trimmed in discreet oak nuances. There is a wonderfully refined quality to the much stonier middle weight flavors that possess a silky and highly seductive mouth feel, all wrapped in a balanced and impressively lengthy finale. Lovely stuff that is class in a glass.'92-94 Points - Allan Meadows, Burghound
