    An extremely ripe, beautifully full and complex nose manages to just avoid being over the top and leads to tannic, spicy and very rich full-bodied flavors of exceptionally good length. The aromas and flavors are entirely fresh and while they are no longer primary, neither have they passed into a entirely secondary phase. This is a big wine of impressive size and weight though it clearly is not one of nuance or finesse. It's still on the way up and probably will not peak for another 5 to 7 years.

    The stellar 1990 Clos de la Roche has a medium-to-dark ruby color and dense dark berry aromas. It possesses a youthful, almost impenetrable core of thick, lush blackberries, juniper berries, plums, cloves, and blueberries that coat the palate. This medium-to-full-bodied wine has exquisite equilibrium and focus, as well as a seemingly unending luxurious finish.

    Just an incredible bottle of wine, succulent, full of fruit and balance.

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

 

Created in 1988 with the purchase of the 12-hectare Domaine Charles Noëllat in Vosne-Romanée, 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 produces 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.
