$432 case “♥ Outstanding! A notably ripe yet still reasonably fresh nose displays a layered mix of both red and dark berry fruit along with plenty of pungent earth influence. The round and seductively textured flavors possess excellent volume while offering very good depth and length on the moderately rustic finish. This is quite good for its level though be aware that it's a full-on Bourgogne.” — Allen Meadows, Burghound Domaine Philippe Leclerc is a 19-acre estate in Gevrey-Chambertin. The historic Leclerc domaine was split in 1974 between Philippe and his older brother Rene. Philippe has Premier Cru parcels in Les Cazetiers, Les Champeaux and La Combe au Moine, as well as village crus in Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny. Les Bons Batons lies at the border of Chambolle-Musigny and Gilly-les-Citeaux, just across the main road from Chambolle proper, and it offers an earlier-drinking expression of Chambolle’s unmistakably sensual, finely mineral essence. It has incredible weight and power that you don’t see at this price any more.
