Diam. This high-grown wine is a favourite among followers of this producer. Leroux has been working with the same 0.45 hectares of vines since 2002 (pre-2007, he made it at Comte Armand). Vireuils is an east-facing, late-ripening site, with pure, rocky, limestone and flint soils. Leroux’s vines, around 45 years of age, are situated in Vireuils Dessus—one of the higher sites of Meursault—sitting above the renowned Les Chevalières and Rougeots lieux-dits. In general, this is one of the best areas for village-level wines in Meursault. Aging took place older 300-litre barrels.

Reviews

“Six barrels made, a half crop. Lemon and lime colour. A little touch of minerality from the bouquet onwards, some varied citrus family notes, racy and quite distinguished. Worth seeking out.”
90-92 points, Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy
“The 2021 Meursault Les Vireuils, traditionally from a cold microclimate, somehow managed to still provide 50% of a normal crop. This has a reserved nose with touches of wax resin and citrus fruit that unfurl in the glass. The palate is well-balanced with grapefruit, lime cordial and light orange rind notes. Open and generous, this Meursault will likely give immense pleasure in its youth.”
90-92 points, Neal Martin, Vinous
