The Abbaye de Morgeot vineyard is situated in the southern part of the Morgeot 1er Cru. Morgeot, like many of the larger sites of the Côte d'Or, is in fact a collection of smaller terroirs. The lime-rich soils of the Abbaye de Morgeot lieu-dit, like Tête du Clos and Les Fairendes, were always known as favourable for whites, and they continue to produce deep, layered yet very mineral expressions of Morgeot, hence the separate labelling. It has a soil of limestone and marl (chalky clay) with a reddish tinge, due to the presence of some iron. Leroux's 0.5-hectare parcel was planted in 1969. Leroux picked this on the early side to ensure vibrancy to balance this terroir's natural generosity. There's terrific weight and texture with a twist of grip on the finish.
"Palish yellow colour, there is an attractive touch of lighter fruit here, far from the massive Morgeot. This is very nicely balanced, absolutely in the style of the vintage, with good persistence." 92 points, Jasper Morris, InsideBurgundy.com
"Pale yellow. Graceful nose offers scents of pear and menthol lifted by a floral topnote. At once silky, juicy and bone-dry, showing a light floral touch and lovely subtle intensity. The slowly building back end is very dry but not austere. This notably harmonious wine is distinctly more floral than Leroux's Meursault bottlings. (12.4% alcohol)" 91-93 points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, September 2018
