Leroux’s terrific Auxey-Duresses was drawn from three terroirs—Les Hautés, La Macabrée and Les Boutonniers—all abutting Meursault’s Les Vireuils Dessous and Les Meix Chavaux. The oldest vines date back to 1946. The land here is north-facing and affected by the cold air rolling down from the Hautes-Côtesso a very fresh terroir! The higher vineyards of the Côte performed brilliantly in 2018, and this is a great example of this phenomena. This was mostly vinified in 12-hectolitre casks.

“The 2018 Auxey-Duresses Village Blanc was taken from tank. It has a well-defined, quite leesy bouquet with fine definition. The well-balanced palate delivers effervescent lime and citrus fruit and a hint of orange peel on the finish. Fine.” 87-89 points, Neal Martin, Vinous
