Good stuff as always. A bit generic but super well made. Ages well but better while young like this

The amount of pleasure this wine brought is so far beyond the script on the label. What makes wine so fun is the fact that you can, from time to time, find the extraordinary in the ordinary

Actually 'just' a Maison (négociant) wine from Leroy but this was in spectacular shape. Drunk blind on Friday arvo options, had me fooled as I thought it half the age village at least. Deep, rich lemon in colour, looked viscous and clingy as it rolled around the glass. On the nose: smoky, honey, creamy, nutty and with fresh stone fruit and lemon, that fruit more obvious with 15 minutes plus open. On the palate, no more than medium bodied, rich but nothing sluggish or flabby here; alert acidity, a touch of honeydew melon and nut up front but firmer fruits through the middle, that creamy/nutty taste and texture wrapping the fruit tight. Touch of oak caressing the gums as the fruit rolls through to a long finish. Delicious drinking - such an impression of effortless intensity and freshness.

I brought this on the list because was so reminiscent of a medium-aged 1er cru Raveneau.
