Bottle Description

Here the sources include Les Millerands, Le Bois de Blagny, Les Criots and Au Moulin Landin, as well as the fruit from Les Vireuils where the average yield was just five hectolitres per hectare (thanks to the frost!). The oldest vines date back to 1944, and the élevage took in just 15% new oak. It's a really lovely, fleshy, nutty Meursault - very classic in style - yet very mineral and fresh on the close. Lovely.
87-89 points THE WINE ADVOCATE "The 2016 Meursault Villages is a mix of frosted and non-frosted vineyards, around half and half in terms of volume according to Leroux. It has a conservative bouquet, quite stony and Puligny-like in style. The palate is well balanced and shows more vivacity and energy than the aromatics at this point: subtle orange zest and fresh lemon notes with a pretty finish. If the nose improves, this will deserve a higher score."
