Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 93 pts. and median of 93 pts. in 5 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by rh53w on 3/14/2014 & rated 93 points: Orangey color. Funky at first, but when that passed it was replaced by a lot of caramel, orange, grapefruit, apricot and a touch of band-aid on a very nice nose. The caramel is the very fatty kind that reminds me of the caramel sense you get from a nice jamon iberico de bellota. Soft, lovely mouthfeel, with excellent acidity remaining and citrus fruit all over the palate. Surprisingly long finish. Really great given the bottle's age. These certainly have some life left in them. (866 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 10/20/2012 & rated 93 points: 50th Birthday Celebration Dinner with Wine (Chez Schmidt - Chicago IL): Started with a bit of sulfur, which is good, having kept this wine wonderfully fresh. Huge orchard fruit, slightly nutty, shockingly fresh and charming, lots of power. If tasted blind, I'd have thought this 20 years younger. (2436 views)
 Tasted by BradE on 9/25/2012: Surprisingly good, and quite enjoyable after an initial funk blew off. (2023 views)
 Tasted by rnellans on 9/25/2012 & rated 93 points: Deep yellow. Advanced with some apricot and apple in the nose. Lush with good fruit and some acid remaining. 93 pts. (2076 views)
 Tasted by BradE on 12/25/2007: A bit oxidized, but enjoyable. Wasn't sure what to expect, as this was a major leaker, but a few of us liked it. Will be interesting to see if the non leaking bottle performs better/differently. (2284 views)

Maison Leroy

Maison Leroy was founded in 1868 and has been a negociant operation throughout its history. As a negociant, Maison Leroy purchases grapes, must (unfermented juice), and finished wine (both in barrel and in bottle) to finish (as appropriate) and place the Leroy label on. Leroy wines are ranked highly in the negociant hierarchy with many of the bottlings being very highly sought. This reputation comes from long-standing relationships that the Leroy family has in Burgundy. These relationships allow Maison Leroy to procure choice wines for the label. Bottlings vary from vintage to vintage, based upon what can be acquired at the quality levels required for the Leroy label. In addition to owning Maison Leroy, Lalou Bize-Leroy is proprietor of Domaine Leroy and Domaine D'Auvenay. Both of these Domaines produce wines from wholly-owned vineyards and are distinct from the Maison Leroy portfolio, despite label similarities between Maison and Domaine Leroy.

Burgundy

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
