Benjamin Leroux Meursault Le Porusot 1er Cru 2018

100% Chardonnay. Having created a name for himself as general manager of Comte Armand, Benjamin Leroux now produces some of the finest wines in Burgundy even though his domaine is less than 15 years old. Benjamin is a master at delivering purity of fruit alongside a seamless texture in his wines which have only the subtlest influence of oak. The legendary Burgundy expert, Allen Meadows, said of Ben that he is “extremely thoughtful . . . positively brilliant . . . one of, if not the, most gifted young winemaker in all of Burgundy.” The possibilities are very exciting for this exceptionally talented vigneron as he coaxes so much life and energy out of every single one of this parcels.

Tasting Notes
"The 2018 Meursault Porusot 1er Cru comes from vines up to 90-plus years old. The bouquet needs a little coaxing to reveal its orange blossom and walnut aromas; a touch of smoke emerges with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a saline entry, very good acidity and impressive concentration. There is a touch of grilled almond and walnut toward the persistent finish, completing an accomplished Porusots that should age over the next 15 years or more." - Neal Martin
