Narvaux means something like behind in the valley. It is relatively high and the 2017 Meursault les Poruzots from les Parcellaires de Saulx is a tremendous wine, grown on marl and limestone soils with red clay. Despite its youth, it has an elegant bouquet with great clarity, fine wood and citrus notes. On the palate with finesse, elegance and a dense body, lingers for a long time in the mouth with aromatic persistence and again the citrus aromas of the fragrance, opulent middle mouth feel and still with a precise finish. Great culinary cinema.
Decanter awards 95/100: "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."
