($320; a blend of the Gevreys) Medium red with a palish rim. Wild, meaty nose is already quite expressive. Sweet and silky but less fat than the Chambolle; this has firm minerality and a smoked meat element but there's also a faint vegetility lurking. Ultimately less primary than the Chambolle and a bit rustic in character. But the smoky finish shows good thrust.

About This Producer


"Domaine Leroy is a welcome reminder of the difference between the very good and the great." - Michel Bettane, Vins de France

Created in 1988 - beginning with the purchase of the 12 hectares Domaine Charles Noellat in Vosne-Romanee - Domaine Leroy has become one of the most impressive and vaunted properties in Burgundy. Cultivation follows strict biodynamic parameters and the combination of old vine preservation and ultra-low yields produce fruit of unrivaled excellence. The resultant wines are masterpieces of purity, intensity and layered subtlety enhanced by an uncommonly statuesque concentration. The spectacular reviews that these wines consistently receive attest to their incredible and solid quality - they are a lynchpin in any Burgundy enthusiast's collection.
