    Good deep red. Aromas of black cherry, redcurrant, minerals and nutty oak. A step up in stuffing and sweetness from the Allots, showing more mid-palate texture and depth. Here the substantial dusty tannins hit the palate later, as there's more buffering material.

    Here the aromas are higher-toned and more elegant with a pretty mix of spicy red and black fruits nuanced with mocha and earth notes that continue onto the suave, rich, sweet and sappy medium full flavors that drench the palate in dry extract on the round and long finish that is certainly attractive but there isn't quite the energy and punch here. Still, this is a lovely effort and worth a look.

    Scented, rich, almost truffley already. Scented, with something decidedly fascinating about this headily perfumed wine with its wonderful nose and jewel-cut delineation. Clear cut and very slightly dry on the finish.

    The 2005 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Lavieres smells of sandalwood, cocoa powder, and lightly-cooked black cherry. Strikingly creamy, polished and plush on the palate, with vividly concentrated cherry fruit and meat juices, it finishes sweet and rich but with strong underlying tannins and stony, alkaline mineral notes.

  • "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.
