    Deep red-ruby. Quintessential Clos de la Roche aromas of small wild red fruits, minerals, gunflint, mocha, smoke and spices. Dense, sappy and gripping, with extremely primary fruit character and deep spiciness; shows a level of vibrancy rare for the vintage. A wine of great definition and freshness, with explosive finishing flavors. A great example of this grand cru.

    The ruby-colored 2002 Clos de La Roche sports an earthy, herbal, black fruit and spice-packed nose. Medium-bodied, deep, and fresh, this structured, somewhat tannic wine offers flavors reminiscent of red cherries, raspberries, and spices. It has lovely purity, concentration, and length.

    Roasted coffee and very ripe earth aromas combine with notes of cassis, minerals and pure pinot extract and seamlessly merge into huge, indeed almost massive flavors of colossal proportions and such complexity that it rivals the RSV for sheer breadth of expression. This is dynamic, vibrant and almost implausibly long. This isn't carrying quite the same brawny structure as the Richebourg or Musigny but this too will lives for decades. As good a Leroy Clos de la Roche as I can remember.

  • "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.
