A real mix of sources this year. Leroux’s estate parcels in Les Millerands, Sous la Velle (both in Meursault) and Les Belles Côtes are joined by fruit from Puligny and the Hautes-Côtes. There’s also a parcel of Vosne-Romanée Bourgogne-level in the mix. The result, as you will taste, is as least as great as the sum of its parts. Raised in 12-hectolitre foudres and some 300-litre barrels, this has serious richness, depth and class for the level.
“Bottled in mid-October and aged in 12-hectoliter foudres (10% new), the 2016 Bourgogne Blanc has a strict, slightly earthy bouquet. The palate is soft and generous on the entry, perhaps just missing a little tension in the middle with a slightly waxy-textured finish. Drink over the next two or three years.” 85 points, Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate #234
