Another bona fide Estate wine this year, with 100% of the fruit hailing from
Leroux's own vines in Moulin Landin, Criots, Bois de Blagny and Les Millerands.
There's also some Clos du Village, one of the new parcels in Meursault that
Leroux picked up following the 2017 harvest. Each of these sites is certified
organic and managed with biodynamic methods. The oldest vines date back to
Fruit from the white marls of Bois de Blagny accounts for 15% this year
and brings a salty-mineral backbone to the layered flesh and depth of the wine.
Elevage took place in foudre and 600-litre demi-muids. As the Jasper Morris
notes states, this is really classic Meursault, and has layers of fruit dripping
with ripe and pear and green almond notes--but there is also wonderful
freshness, grip and drive. Outstanding.
