  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 96

    Deep ruby, even darker than the Brulees. Brooding mineral, licorice and floral aromas; as in some past vintages, rather Richebourg-like. Wonderfully silky and sweet, with dynamic fruit complicated by floral and mineral elements. Powerfully structured for the vintage. Really explosive on the aftertaste. Has everything, and already displays great personality.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

    Magnificent. Opulent and decadent, thick and ripe, yet remains very elegant and racy. A bit savage, with plenty of wild berry, dried herbs and currant aromas and flavors married to the deftly toasted oak accents. Balanced, full-bodied, with a long, silky finish.

    This dark-colored wine is a cut above. Profound aromas of intensely sweet cherries, raspberries, stones, and earth give way to a full-bodied, extremely feminine, and massively ripe and vibrant core of roses, cherries, and candied blueberries. This silky-textured, hedonistic (yet wonderfully structured), and focused wine ends on an incredibly long and detailed finish.

    Stunning. Sous bois On the nose and sweet Pinot sap on the palate. Great finish. This wine seduces.

"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.
