Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 92.7 pts. and median of 93 pts. in 10 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by BradE on 7/12/2014: Great funky nose,that kept on giving. Spicy palate, long long finish. I liked it a lot. Not a rock star, but very good and fun to drink. (1088 views)
 Tasted by Jeremy Holmes on 5/13/2014: The whole table thought this was a 2004, it was quite green and spicy on the nose and a little skinny in the mouth. Paul did not like the wine, I actually quite enjoyed it. The nose offered up some sandalwood and floral spice. It was red fruited and crunchy in the mouth, compact and lean with decent cut to the finish. (1145 views)
 Tasted by johnh1001 on 3/16/2013 & rated 95 points: Decanted and drank over 4 hours. After about an hour, a wonderfully bright nose of red fruit, smoke, black fruit with lots of spice emerged. The palate was dense and concentrated, holding back lots of layers. Plenty of spice and candied cherries in a dense core of fruit. Very long lingering finish. Very Leroy, very sexy. Interestingly, with more time in the glass, the tannins seemed to become more apparent but were never bothersome. (2007 views)
 Tasted by johnh1001 on 2/11/2012 & rated 94 points: At Tru vs the 02 Les Brûlées. A beautiful rich dark fruit smokey sexy nose. The taste perfectly matched the nose and this got better over the two hours we had this open. Very Leroy. This has a long life ahead. (2537 views)
 Tasted by Richard Jennings on 9/2/2011 & rated 93 points: David Niederauer's 4th Annual Hobo Dinner: A Night of Surprises (The Plumed Horse Restaurant, Saratoga, California): Bricking, slightly cloudy, medium red violet color; stemmy, tobacco, tart cranberry, sous bois nose; tasty, velvety textured, sous bois, tobacco, tart red fruit palate; medium-plus finish (1958 views)
 Tasted by Richard Jennings on 5/7/2009 & rated 92 points: 2nd Annual Hobo's Winetasting Dinner - a Niederauer Production (Plumed Horse Restaurant, Saratoga, California): Medium dark red color with pale meniscus; earthy, funky, green nose; herbal, green pea, tart red fruit, mineral, rosehips and bark palate; medium-plus finish 92+ pts. (2114 views)
 Tasted by Richard Jennings on 8/14/2008 & rated 88 points: Burgundy and Pinot Blindtasting Dinner (Plumed Horse Restaurant, Saratoga, California): Bricking red color with pale meniscus; funky tobacco and weedy nose; tart tobacco and weedy palate; medium finish (possibly a flawed bottle?) (2223 views)
 Tasted by georgeohr on 3/29/2007 & rated 94 points: At La Bernadin. Explosive nose from the sampling pour onward. At first tight on the pallette. After 15 minutes made decision to decant. Opened up wonderfully. Classic Vosne notes-stunning finish. (3708 views)
 Tasted by BradE on 1/7/2007: A few Sunday burgs at Jeffs house.: One of my bottles of the 02 Leroy Beaux Monts was a leaker, so I wanted to open it rather than store it. Pulled off the wax to find that the edges of the bottle tip seemed to be just slightly broken. Was this the possible reason for the leak? To be sure we didn't drink glass, we carefully strained the wine through a paper coffee filter. The nose was extremely funky, and the initial impression was that it might be spoiled. We brought it to Jeff's house anyway. Surprise! Not spoiled at all. This just needed some time in the decanter. On the nose, the words that come to mind are smoke and spice. This carried over into the palate as well. An interesting combination of fruit, smoke, spice - and very, very intense. Yes, intense it the right word. Drinking very well now. Will this be a wine that's open throughout its early life? (3080 views)
 Tasted by skwid on 1/13/2006: Drunk from inexpensive restaurant glassware, not decanted.

Wow this wine was simply awesome. Lots of plush aromatics and tons of fruit. I gotta get some more of this. (3179 views)

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 Monts

Beaux 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.

Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru

Vosne Romanée is one of the smallest wine villages in Burgundy The wines possess diverse characteristics, but they can generally considered to have complexity and longevity beyond nearly all other wines in the world. The village has six grand crus: Romanée-Conti, La Romanée, La Tâche, Richebourg, Romanée-Saint-Vivant, and La Grande Rue. While there is monopoly control of four of the six grand crus, the village has at least forty growers sharing its vineyards. The top premier cru includes Les Malconsorts, Cros Parantoux, Les Chaumes, and Clos des Réas.
