International Wine Cellar | Rating: 96Bright medium ruby. Riveting nose combines black raspberry, Oriental spices, rose petal and cocoa. Precise, subtle and shapely; boasts an utterly mouthfilling texture yet is not yet revealing its complexity. Very firmly structured for a '99. Finishes with great length and snap.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2001
"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.
