This year’s cuvée derives from Corvée des Vignes, Les Reuchaux and Les Levrons—a grouping of vineyards on the Meursault side of the village. Across the parcels, the vines average 40 years of age, and these vines were amongst the first to be picked in 2018. Raised in mostly 300-litre barrels for 18 months.
“The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Village has primal grapefruit and lemongrass bouquet that needs a little more mineral expression. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. A very textural Puligny with a crisp, fresh yet generous finish. Leroux’s decision to pick this first among all his vineyards pays dividends.”
