Smoke-, humus-, iodine-, blond tobacco- and wet-stone-inflected aromas in Leroy’s 2005 Savigny-les-Beaune Les Narbantons suggest the almost Medoc-like elements that can accrue to wines from this site. With that usually goes plenty of structure, and the present example will disappoint no one in this regard, as there are abundant albeit fine tannins to chew on. Almost inevitably though, from stem to stern, this has the trademark Leroy sweetness and richness of in this case black cherry, and the plushness covering the tannins. It finishes with formidable cling of sweet fruit, tobacco, roasted meats, and wet stones.
