Leroux calls Tête du Clos the “Chevalier-Montrachet of the south”. It’s one of the many sub-climats of Morgeot and lies at the apex of the vineyard where the soil is very rocky. There is barely 20 centimetres of topsoil, with white clay and plenty of limestone on the surface. It’s about the same altitude as Les Embazées, but it showcases a completely different expression of Chassagne—both richer and more mineral (hence the Chevalier reference). Leroux’s 0.4-hectare old-vine parcel (planted in 1955) produces small, concentrated clusters bringing a genuine depth of fruit to go with the intense, earthy minerality. It’s a wine that lives up to its baby-Grand-Cru reputation.
