Community Tasting Notes

 Tasted by DanTheRhoneFan on 12/10/2012: Vie - 12/8/12 - Laura's BD. Bottle showed a lot of label fading (only the year was able to be made out at this point). Nose of cherry and barnyard. The nose had me excited for the taste. Taste was of light light fruit with some minerality and stable notes. It was enjoyable but very short and thin at this stage. The bottle showed far better than I feared given its condition and so I was in no way displeased. Finish was short lived. Special bottle on a special evening. No Rating. (1582 views)
 Tasted by baja on 12/9/2007: Drank at Berns Steakhouse in Tampa for my wifes birthday (after opening a corked 62 Branaire Duluc-Ducru). Medium Ruby color with a slight bit of fading and minimal bricking showing on edge. The nose on this showed of cherry, leather and mineral with some underlining vegetal V8 notes that I have found in some older Bordeaux...very attractive/interesting nose. On the palate we again found notes of cherry and leather turning real mineral and menthol with that band aide element on the medium finish. This is oh so soft and delicate but still showing some good flavor for it's age........kind of like a real sophisticated older Madison Ave lady in her 80's....she has seen her day but still has that elegant touch and look to her.....very nice to experience older Bordeaux like this.

 Tasted by Dave Dalluge on 10/11/2007: Winestreet Tastes an Abundance of Leroy: Ordered off the WA Frost winelist ($125). We had a lot of trouble getting the cork out in one piece, but ultimately prevailed. Deep ruby red with minimal bricking. The nose gives a great blast of smokey red fruit with some funkiness. We didn't wait around to see if this blew off. Pretty impressive on the palate, with good weight, good balance, and a fun melange of black fruit, black tea, cloves, mineral, and smokey/charred notes. Not overly expansive but plenty of flavor. Tannins are fully resolved (as if there was any doubt). A very good (not great) bottle of wine, but very, very fun. (2850 views)
 Tasted by Siggy on 10/11/2007: Winestreet Does Leroy (WA Frost, St. Paul): $125 on the restaurant list. Deep red color. Slightly swampy nose. On the palate, this shows fully mature black tea, cloves, dust, earth and mushrooms, in a light, elegant frame. The fruit is a little dilute, but seems to be holding on. Soft and supple in the mouth. Light body. Fully resolved tannins. Interesting. (2976 views)
