As we know Leroux is no stranger to Chassagne, and his intimacy shows here. This comes from three different sources but mostly from a terroir called Les Voillenots Dessus (just under 1er cru La Maltroie) with vines averaging around 30 years of age. As with Leroux’s Meursault villages, this wine was aged in mature 600 litre barrels (20% new) for a year before being transferred to tank before bottling.


“Medium yellow; these 2015s show pale, healthy colors. Explosive pear and peach aromas lifted by a floral topnote. Nicely concentrated and shapely, with the flavors of peach, pear and flowers showing a trace of alcoholic warmth. Saline and a touch dry on the finish, the latter probably due to the recent sulfur addition. Offers a nice combination of richness and healthy acidity.” 89-91 points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com


“A pungent and difficult nose is composed of post-malo lactic and reductive aromas. On the plus side there is excellent richness to the very generously proportioned middle weight flavors that possess a caressing mouth feel before terminating in a solidly complex and persistent finish. This is a very competent villages though I underscore that my projected range offers the benefit of the doubt on the nose.” 88-91 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound issue 67
