    2016 notwithstanding, Leroux has been making this wine from the same 0.35 hectares of vines since 2002 (pre-2007, this was at Comte Armand). This is from three parcels in Vireuils Dessus—one of the higher sites of Meursault—sitting above the renowned Les Chevalières and Rougeots lieux-dits in one of the best parts of Meursault for villages level. Vireuils is an east-facing, late-ripening site, with pure, rocky, limestone and flint soils. The vines are now around 45 years of age and, as always, have gifted a wine of intense minerality. It’s a vineyard that performs exceptionally in warm and generous years like 2018, with the wine’s sappy, high-grown freshness providing mouth-watering tension.

    White peach, hazelnut, a little peppermint white chocolate, pretty floral notes. It’s silky and fine, flows along smoothly, a fine chalk dust texture, a subtle green herb and lemon zest bitterness cinching the finish. Dusting of white pepper as it goes. It’s a lovely thing to drink. All just so. - Gary Walsh, Winefront
