    A toasty and moderately reduced nose that is sweet yet musky and rather sauvage in character merges into rich, textured and marvelously concentrated flavors that are surprisingly supple on the mid-palate for such a massive constituted wine and in the same vein, the strikingly persistent finish is powerful yet precise and detailed. There is firm tannic spine that is almost invisible due to all of the dry extract. From a structural standpoint, this is reminiscent of the Musigny as it's truly a block of stone at present. Like the best wines here, there is just another dimension to the depth. In sum, this is a great Chambertin and those fortunate to own it can, if they choose, will it to their children as this will easily last for 50 years and may go longer than that.

    Bright, deep ruby-red. Wild, highly complex nose offers dark fruits, nuts, meat and underbrush. Suave and silky on entry, then dense and chewy in the middle, with a smoky suggestion of earth. This expands impressively toward the back, finishing with wonderfully fine tannins and great building length. The longest of these wines today, along with the Romanee-Saint-Vivant. And concentrated enough to go on for decades.

    Leroy's 2005 Chambertin (like her Musigny and Clos Vougeot, from three parcels) leads with a knockout punch of super-concentrated, liqueur-like black raspberry, cassis, and licorce, rose petal (no, make that the whole rose garden!), and deep, roasted meatiness. Monumentally dense, yet vibrant and energetic, this builds momentum on the palate as it adds black pepper, tactile cinnamon spice, and distilled fruit and herb concentration. I have seldom experienced such a literal (not to mention phenomenally long) finish: it simply wiped the floor with your humble critic. If I were ever to encounter this wine in the ring again, I pray that it won't be for at least a decade (and that it spots me 98 points).

    Much darker than LatriciŠres. Tar, liquorice, molasses richness - magnificent in its multi-layered complexity. Remarkable finess on the palate too. All we need do is wait and wait because the wine has merely got to the stage of preparatory press-ups - no actual performance in view for quite a while.

  • "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.
