"Porusot" is close to the word "Porroux" which means a stony, rocky place in Burgundy. This Climat is on a very mineral slope with a stony terroir covered with extensive gravel.
Composed of marl and limestone, the Premier Cru "Les Poruzots" terroir is characterised by a clay-rich, fertile soil that is red in colour.
Appearance: Gold with green tints
Bouquet: Lively, elegant with precise citrus notes
In the mouth: Finesse, elegance with good body, lingers in the mouth with aromatic persistence and citrus aromas, fat mid mouth feel with a precise finish.

"A fine 1er Cru Meursault, showing restraint, purity and concentration. This is too young at the moment but will develop into a very fine bottle after 2-3 years maturation. Lime/orange zest on the palate with nutty, honeyed notes. Although there is lots of power here, the wine has excellent freshness to balance. A great combination of flavour, acidity, oak and terroir.
