Wine Advocate | Rating: 97The 2011 Romanee-St-Vivant Grand Cru is blessed with a quintessential, floral bouquet that has beguiling complexity. Just allowing it to open over two or three minutes reveals hidden facets: limestone cave, dried herbs, jasmine tea and bay leaf that are all exquisitely defined. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine grip on the entry. There is plenty of concentration here, but it is brilliantly channeled and the finish fans out gloriously on the spice-tinged, animated finish. This is a sensational wine.Author: Neal Martin
Burghound | Rating: 98It is what one would expect, but expected or not, this couldn't be more different from the Renardes. A stunningly elegant, pure and almost diaphanous nose displays a dazzling array of spice and floral elements as well as both red and black pinot fruit scents. The mouth feel is concentrated yet incredibly refined with superb depth of material and flat out unbelievable complexity, all wrapped in a brilliantly persistent finish that floats across the palate. A classy and utterly exquisite effort.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.
