| ||Tasted by clayfu on 4/26/2013: Killing baby Burgundies at the Playground (Playground , Santa Ana, CA): This wine is so complete and balanced right now after a hour or two opened. It throws off copious amounts of red fruit, black tea leaves, earth with cooling acidity uplifting all the flavors as it just expanded across the palate. Big contrast to the 92 I had the week before that had that same beautiful leroy BM acidity but without that fruit to back it up. (2371 views)|
| ||Tasted by FYC on 4/25/2013: A really enchanting spice/earth nose with sweet fruit and some unresolved alcohol in the beginning. The palate was open, sweet, and well balanced. The unresolved alcohol integrated after 2 hours to become a complete wine with some additional black tea component emerging. Delicious. (1843 views)|
| ||Tasted by Pacalet on 4/21/2013 & rated 92 points: Medium red color with slight brownish rim. Typical Leroy floral nose with lots of spices, ripe fruit, in fact in the beginning a little harsh, alcohol and unresolved tannins. With time the balance came back, nose with a small amount of candied fruit behind the flowers, elegant and fine. But next to the Brulees 95, this wine does not have as much power or focus, slightly lacking in concentration. In its prime now. (1907 views)|
| ||Tasted by Lorien on 8/5/2011 & rated 95 points: A marvekous wine right now, that will continue to be great for a few more years. Perfumy appealing armors. Concentrated, big, very typical. Huge mouthful of goodness. Truly a great one at a really sweet point (8314 views)|
| ||Tasted by Roentgen Ray on 5/1/2011 & rated 93 points: Dark color with a light rim at the glass meniscal interface. At first a little muted, but opened up over one hour. It showed red fruit, mostly cherry, lots of dusty minerality, as well as sous bois and spicy nuances. Medium bodied in the mouth and solidly built tannins that have pretty good grip. The acidity was high, but in balance with the wine. Drink our hold. (3001 views)|
| ||Tasted by Richard Jennings on 6/12/2008 & rated 95 points: Surprise Birthday Party for David Niederauer (The Plumed Horse Restaurant, Saratoga, California): Medium brick red color with pale meniscus; nice tart strawberry with sous bois nose; tasty and complex palate of tart strawberry, red fruit, rosehips and minerals; medium-plus finish (3880 views)|
| ||Tasted by lars1014 on 12/28/2006 & rated 95 points: Top Flight Burgundy in DC - Respects to President Ford (Washington DC - Cafe 15): Now beginning full maturity this thrilling wine gives oodles of cherry, soy, spices, leather, and something I can only describe as dumpling dipping sauce. Amazingly, underneath all these flavors was a bright backbone that helped bring this wine to life. I imagine that this fantastic premiere cru will hold this plateau for another 10 years.

Pinot Noir Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.
Les Beaux MontsBeaux Monts covers a little over 11 hectares and is further subdivided into Beaux Monts, Les Hautes Beaux Monts, Les Beaux Monts Hauts, and Les Beaux Monts Bas. It borders the grand cru vineyard of Echézeaux, though at a higher altitude. Quality is variable with some wines described as "weedy" and they are typically less dense than wines from lower altitudes. Better examples may have a high-toned perfume. Top producers for Beaux Monts include Domaine Bertagna, Bruno Clavelier, Leroy, Hudelot-Noëllats, Louis Jadot, and Henri Jayer.

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.
