Wine Spectator | Rating: 94A wine for the next century. Dense, thick and ripe, this intense i grand cru n displays a searing intensity of flavors and aromas. It blends nicely smoky, toasted oak and sweet fruit. Very youthful, closed and hard now. The firm tannins need until at least 2005 to soften.--Leroy vertical.Author: Per-Henrik Mansson
Wine Advocate | Rating: 98The dark ruby with amber-colored 1993 Clos de la Roche is a show-stopper. It has penetrating aromas of cassis, blackberry, stones, and wild herbs. On the palate, leather, boysenberries, assorted dark fruits, and a myriad of spices can be discerned in its complex and decadently fashioned personality. This 1993 unquestionably has the requisite power, richness, concentration, and density of fruit to stand up to its solid backbone.Author: Pierre Rovani
"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.
