There is more overt chewiness of tannin to go with the impressive density of Leroy’s 2005 Nuits-St.-Georges Aux Allots, which leads with red currant and rhubarb, comes to the palate with soy-like savor and chalky minerality, and finishes long on bright fruit and invigorating savor, but also relatively implacable tannin.
