Wine Advocate | Rating: 95The 2011 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Aux Brulee has another striking bouquet, quintessential Vosne-like breeding and sophistication with very pure, mineral-rich red and black fruit marrying beautifully together. It gains intensity in just two or three minutes. The palate is vibrant and quite spicy, almost exotic in terms of richness on the entry, perhaps one of Lalou's more extravagant 2011s with a scintillating, silky smooth finish that fans across the mouth with hints of raspberry and pomegranate. There is enormous length and intensity present here ' a superb Pinot Noir brimming over with vivacity and charm. The parcel of vines within Les Beaux Monts is basically a continuation of Aux Brulees.Author: Neal Martin
Burghound | Rating: 94An exceptionally fresh nose features notes of ultra-pure blue and black pinot fruit, violets and rose petal nuances along with an amazing range of exotic spice elements. There is good power and plenty of energy to the intense, detailed and well-muscled flavors that brim with a seemingly endless reserve of dry extract that imparts an almost lavish palate impression to the explosively long finish. In a word, terrific.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.
