Professional Wine Reviews for Benjamin Leroux Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Aux Thorey Pinot Noir 2014

Rated 92 by Decanter
Dark ruby-red. Deep aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, smoke, meat and bitter chocolate. A lovely concentrated midweight, with expressive flavors of sweet dark berries, violet and chocolate. Finishes with a serious spine of tannins and lingering notes of minerals and licorice. Left behind a strong floral quality in the empty glass. (Vinous)
Rated 91 by Robert Parker
The 2014 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Aux Thorey has a sense of airiness on the nose with perfumed black cherry and bergamot scents, and just a faint touch of sea-spray. The palate is smooth and silky, partly due to it being completely destemmed; then there is a sharp acidic thread that lends tension towards the finish that shows just a slight attenuation.

Additional Information on Benjamin Leroux Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Aux Thorey Pinot Noir 2014

Winery: Benjamin Leroux

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir grapes have been cultivated in and around the Burgundy region of France for centuries, where they have long been favored by vintners for their wide range of flavors, their thin skins and for producing wines which have light, smooth tannins, and a beautiful garnet red color Whilst they remain one of the flagship varietals of this special region, their wide popularity and recent status as a fashionable 'romantic' varietal has led to them being planted in almost every wine producing country in the world. However, the Pinot Noir demands a huge amount of care and attention from the wineries that wish to grow it, as this varietal is particularly susceptible to various forms of mildew and rot. Despite this, the grape is otherwise a favorite with wineries for the fact that it requires little extra effort once it begins fermentation. Pinot Noir is also widely known for producing some of the world's most famous sparkling wines, being one of two key grapes for the production of Champagne, and several other sparkling varieties.

Region: Burgundy

The beautiful region of Burgundy in France is famously home to some of the most exquisite red wines to be found anywhere on earth, and is most commonly associated with the silky, elegant and flavorful Pinot Noir varietal wines which are commonly produced there. However, the superb and mineral rich soils fed by the Rhone river, and the long hot summers and mild autumns of the region produce a wide variety of fine grapes, and as such, Burgundy produces plenty of different wines which are equally as good as the produce the region is famed for. The region of Burgundy itself has a wine-making history which stretches back at least two thousand years, and as such, it comes as no surprise that the wineries which fill the dozens of controlled appellations of the region rely heavily on traditional methods and techniques when it comes to producing their famous wines.

Country: France

It is widely understood and accepted that the finest wines in the world come out of France. Whether you are drinking a vintage bottle from one of the famed Grand Cru wineries of Bordeaux - such as Chateau Margaux or Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - or a more simple and affordable bottle from one of the lesser known appellations in Burgundy, the likelihood is that the wine is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, and has a fine, balanced structure typical of almost all French produce. This reputation for excellence is taken extremely serious by the French, with dozens of regularly updated laws and regulations ensuring the quality and accurate labeling of wines. Such dedication and passion for fine wine, representative of the region in which it is produced, means customers can be assured that when they buy a bottle from France, they are buying something almost certain to please and delight.
