Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

The gorgeous 1991 Vosne-Romanee-Les Beaumonts is deeper and more saturated in color than the Vosne-Romanee-Les Genevrieres. The sweet fragrance of chocolate, black fruits, herbs, and toasty vanillin is followed by a long, unctuously-textured, layered wine with magnificent concentration, soft acid, and moderate ripe tannin in the finish.

Burghound | Rating: 92

I don't know whether I have simply had sub-standard bottles before or whether they had not been stored as well as those that I purchased in 1993 but this bottle bore no resemblance at two prior bottles that I had tried. Either way, the '91 Beaux Monts has arrived at peak maturity with its wonderful nose of sous bois, mature fruit, earth and a gorgeous array of spices that complements perfectly the rich, sweet, intense and beautifully detailed middle weight flavors that culiminate in a velvety finish of impressive persistence. This is a truly lovely wine that should continue to drink well over another 20 years though as I say, one that now has arrived at its peak. Inconsistent notes.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

Tough and chewy; this earthy, gamy wine emerges with a distinctive violet scent, a solid core of currant and berry flavors and a tight, hard finish. Drinkable now. 292 cases made.

About This Producer

"Domaine Leroy is a welcome reminder of the difference between the very good and the great." - Michel Bettane, Vins de France

Created in 1988 - beginning with the purchase of the 12 hectares Domaine Charles Noellat in Vosne-Romanee - 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 produce 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.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
