Burghound | Rating: 92A conspicuously earthy nose possesses plenty of humus and underbrush characters that add breadth to the mostly dark berry fruit scents. The dense but velvety middle weight flavors possess an abundance of dry extract that coats the palate and buffers the firm tannins on the slightly rustic and austere yet wonderfully complex finale. This too is going to require extended cellaring to reach its apogee but should be approachable after only 6 to 8 years.Author: Allen Meadows
Wine Advocate | Rating: 92When broaching the 2014 Savigny les Beaune les Narbantons, Lalou quipped that it was her |Petit Corton.| It has a complex nose of red berry fruit, dried orange peel and even a distant scent of fresh fig. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, plenty of freshness and vitality here, a little hardness toward the finish and a light spicy aftertaste. Very fine.Author: Neal Martin
"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.
