From 2015 Leroux's Bourgogne Blanc is one of six wines crafted exclusively from estate owned fruit. The majority of this cuvée is drawn from 60 year old vines rooted in a single site in Meursault called Les Millerands(so named because of the small bunches and berries that result in this terroir). Les Millerands is on the Puligny side of Meursault. The other parcels are Sous la Velle (just below Meursault village) and Les Belles Côtes, a Bourgogne-level parcel sited under Les Malpoiriers at the base of the Volnay slope. Vines in this latter site are also farmed by Coche and Roulot. The wine was raised in 12 hectolitre cask for 12 months before spending a few months resting in tank. Lovely texture here, with vibrant, juicy acidity giving definition and tension to the wine's pulpy fruit. As always, this seriously over delivers.
