Wine Advocate | Rating: 93The 2011 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has a magnificent bouquet with powerful honeyed fruit: hints of apricot blossom, warm brioche and wax resin. The palate is very smooth on the entry with a creamy texture. The acidity is very well-judged with a viscous, almost decadent finish. Not a shy and retiring Corton-Charlemagne. Wonderful.Author: Neal Martin
Burghound | Rating: 95An expansive and expressive nose blends together notes of petrol, exotic fruit, green apple, wet stone and a touch of oak. There is stunningly good power and superb concentration to the borderline painfully intense and imposingly scaled flavors that brim with both plenty of minerality and dry extract. This bone dry effort and massively persistent effort is going to require every bit of a decade and probably a bit more before it's completely ready for prime time.Author: Allen Meadows
"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.
