  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 97

    Excellent deep red-ruby color. Knockout nose combines iron, spice, fresh blood, cocoa and violet; sappy and vibrant. Dense but penetrating texture in the mouth; pure and extremely complex, with a deep spiciness at the core. Really reverberates in the mouth and on the brilliant finish. Ample but not at all soft. A great wine that gives an almost chewy impression of extract.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 96

    Initial aromas of black pepper, mint, and just a hint vegetal. Elegant and racy, with understated power, a silky texture and terrific length. Needs a little time yet, but will develop nicely. Domaine Leroy non-blind tasting (6/08).

    The dark-colored 1996 Musigny displays super aromas of flowers, berries, and mint. It has huge breadth of fresh, succulent, and lush blueberries, raspberries, violets, and cherries. This medium-to-full-bodied wine should hit its peak around 2006 and hold for a decade or more.

  • "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.
