The 2022 Meursault-Blagny La Pièce Sous Le Bois 1er Cru had just been racked. It has one of the best aromatics amongst Leroux's Meursaults: full of vigour and tensile with light grilled walnut and almond scents. The palate is well-balanced with fine weight, a keen thread of acidity and plenty of extract towards the finish. I can see this aging well in bottle. 90-92 Neal Martin, Vinous (2023).

From the top of the slope (lower elevations are planted to Pinot Noir), this delicious Meursault premier cru has retained a gratifying freshness even in this hot year, with notes of lemon peel, flint and fresh white flowers overlaid with a smoky reductive quality. The texture is lively and bright; the wine was finished in foudre on the fine lees to preserve its fresh appeal. The grapes come from Leroux’s 1.7ha of Chardonnay at almost 360m. 93 Charles Curtis MW, Decanter (2023).

From vines farmed but not owned. Clear pale lemon. Ripe apples, a light lemon rinse, then a very steely core through the middle, full of energy, racy and stylish at the same time, with a fine long finish. Racked to foudre to finish its elevage. **** 92-94 Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy (2023).
