Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

The 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Combottes is one of my favorite Premier Crus of the appellations (although Lalou rebuked by suggestion that it can occasionally be a Grand Cru quality!) It has an understated, refined, focused bouquet that builds with aeration: blackberry, a touch of bay leaf, minerals and a distant trace of Provencal herbs. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe tannins and a silky smooth texture; layers of black and red fruit suffused with minerals and just a touch of spice-box toward the long, intense finish. C'mon ... this would embarrass a few Grand Crus Lalou?but maybe from other growers.

Burghound | Rating: 93

Here the nose is composed of pure and very cool extract of red currant liqueur, stone and soft earth aromas. The round, tender, delicious and caressing medium-bodied flavors possess excellent concentration and fine intensity before culminating in an extract-rich and mouth coating finish that, in contrast to the almost delicate mouth feel of the mid-palate, is robust and muscular. This is certainly an admirable effort by any standard but as good as it is, there are better 1ers in the range.

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.
