Benjamin Leroux

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2016

I could drink this wine every night. Not too simple, not too complex. Notes of vanilla, baked red apples, fluffy lemon curd, and the right amount of minerality. Served with fresh bay scallops, sautéed spinach, and a tomato Beurre Blanc. Benjamin Leroux is the man! — 4 years ago
