(Leroux owns this parcel, planted in 1960): Bright yellow. Musky but reticent scents of apricot, spices and smoky stone (the bedrock here is close to the surface, says Leroux). Very ripe and rich, verging on exotic, but supported by a nice combination of decent acidity and underlying minerality. This tactile, dusty wine, the longest of these young 2016s to this point, really saturates the mouth. The border of the frost was right here, noted Leroux: "Dessous made just half a crop but Dessus was normal."
