Olivier Leflaive - Meursault 1er Cru Poruzots 2019

Overview

The village of Meursault is an important appellation for Maison Olivier Leflaive as it is the home of chief winemaker Franck Grux. The Maison typically produces up to 10 cuvées including Premiere Crus; Perrières, Charmes, Genevrières, Poruzots and Narvaux.

Terroir: Meursault 1er Cru Poruzots is located in the heart of the appellation just south of the village and bordering Les Genevrières to the south. The overall vineyard is 72 acres and Olivier Leflaive owns a small portion of it. Soils are rocky and dominated by limestone.

Vinification The parcels are hand harvested and undergo alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in barrel. The Maison restricts the use of new oak to just 20% to retain vineyard character. The wines see on average 12-15 months in barrel before a gentle fining, blending and finally bottling. The wine will rest in bottle for 15-18 months prior to release.

"Lovely candied-citrus nose with delicate vanilla oak and a hint of coconut. Rather rich and succulent, with fine tannins and supple acidity, this is a sensual Meursault with the kind of depth you expect from a 1er Cru site. Long, mellow finish. Drink or hold."
