Importer Note:

Leroux’s Auxey-Duresses vineyards lie below the village, abutting the Meursault Villages Les Vireuils Dessus and Les Meix Chavaux. The land here is north-facing and is therefore affected by the cold air rolling down from the Hautes-Côtes. The wine comes from three terroirs in this cool, mineral (rocky) place – Les Hautés, La Macabrée and Les Boutonniers. The oldest vines date back to 1946, planted just after the war. With a relatively generous 2 hectares to work with, Auxey-Duresses has become a principal wine for Leroux. This was vinified in 12-hectolitre cask for 12 months. While it is clearly riper than 2014, it remains racy and crystalline with nectarine and citrus fruits and a notable core of chalky, mineral freshness. Very smart.

“A slightly fresher though still notably ripe array combines notes of citrus peel and essence of pear and apple scents. There is once again good volume to the slightly more tightly wound flavors that exude a subtle minerality onto the nicely persistent and relatively dry finale. Once again, this should drink well on the younger side.” 87-89 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound issue 67
