Importer Note:

Leroux’s wine from this small 1er Cru comes from a 0.30 hectare, organically-managed parcel in the Porusots Dessus, the section of the vineyard bordering Genevrières. Wines from this vineyard can also be bottled as Poruzots. It’s an east-facing site with very little topsoil. Most of the fruit comes from a parcel of 1930 vines that produce tiny, concentrated berries. The rest comes from 25 year old vines. This is a site that is known for producing layered and earthy Meursault (see Germain & Jobard) and Leroux’s example is typically one of his most intensely mineral whites. Vinified with (an almost invisible) 25% new oak, the juicy, young ’15 is already showing a seductive texture – generous and graceful – shot through with a citric cut and a nip of phenolic grip on the compact, rocky finish. In a word, brilliant. 

 “There is a hint of the exotic to the fresh if markedly ripe nose of white and yellow orchard fruit, muscat and floral aromas that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. The big-bodied, powerful and concentrated flavors brim with dry extract while delivering fine if not truly exceptional depth and persistence on the clean and relatively dry finish. This isn't elegant but I like the balance and it should drink well after only a few years of cellaring if desired.”89-91 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound issue 67
