2009 Maison Leroy Bourgogne

6/28/2015 - Rourketown Likes this wine: 94 points

The slightly dusty nose is a bit restrained on opening but the wine opens up quickly to the palate. I admit this is my first bottle of Leroy ever, but it has a very classy and refined mouth feel. My impression was wine has a high toned perfume and floral essence with solid minerality that goes on and on. Classic Burgundy. (On a side note the cork was soaked with wine and they told me Leroy is know for overfilling their bottles? WTH) All in all though, easily the best 'Bourgogne' I have ever has the pleasure to drink.

Unfortunately, nothing like Drew's good bottle. Saturated cork with top mold; browning, tired pinot within. Crap!

Wow. Wow. Amazingly fresh and youthful nose of spice, earth, dried roses, truffles and more spice. Classic power without weight on the palate this was at once delicate and pretty while delivering persistent and bright flavors every minute of the 3 hours we had the bottle open. Incredible detail and nuance but the freshness and brightness of the red fruit really stole the show. An absolutely beautiful mature bottle of Burgundy.

Medium gold in color, with a slight whiff of sulphur preserving it without any hint of oxidation. Amazing that a negoce village Auxey. would still be alive, let alone enjoyable, at age 32.

A great bottle, the wine is Soft and elegant! Although over 50 years, the wine is still very lively with lots of red fruit, fresh strawberry, floral, rose, subtle earthy and forest nose behind with a long finish.

Interesting with some elements indicating a Leroy but not overwhelmingly. Nothing outstanding. Probably more time will give it some more complexity.

Bill's lunch, Drew's bottle. Flawless youthful color. Bright, en pointe Burgundian nose and palate of dark cherry, minerals, and a touch of rosemary. Drinks like a 1er Cru. Delish.

Final wine. We could tell that there was certainly some age from the color, as well as the slight funk that was presented on the nose. It soon blew off to reveal a nice mature potpourri of dried flowers, forest-floor, autumn leaves. This could still hold itself in the glass, with just enough fruit & freshness left that made it not come across dull & tired. A very nice experience with a rather old wine. However, time to drink up if you have any; Don't expect it to improve any furthur...

I had originally scored this 99 points when tasted on release 10 or 12 years ago. It has been shut down for several years now since. Remains brooding, deep and rich on nose and palate with requisite foresty funk to remind us where it's from. Need to stay away for at least another 6 to 8 years or it's otherwise a waste of something great yet to happen.

A private tasting (Restaurant De Gieser Wildeman *, Noordeloos, Netherlands): Light colour, mature but lively appearance; mature but lively nose, crushed red fruit, well-delineated, sous-bois, hint of truffle, gentle warmth, harmonious, good depth, very attractive; elegant palate, complex, mature but retains it tannic grip, well-aged, slender and precise, feminine; very good length. A beautiful wine.

Reductive on the open but blew off after a few minutes. Very pleasant wine and very good for being a regional level wine. Reasonable acidity probably means it can go a few more years easily. Good fruit, a little touch of funkiness that grew on me.

Dark ruby. Another surprise on this Burgundy night. Deep and brooding nose of black fruit with lots of blueberry, fruit compote, bakery, licorice. Quite full bodied but with excellent freshness and balance, ripe but not overripe. Very good for a 2003

Paired tasting with Leroy Bourgogne 2005 and 2009. Much to our surprise, the 2005 has a very perfumed fresh fruity nose. It seems a bit closed, still waiting for something to develop. On the other hand, the 2009 demonstrated a textbook Burgundy nose, it's farmyardy, ripe cherry, hint of smokiness, that's everything you expected from a classic Burgundy found there, without much bottle decanting even.

After half an hour, still similar contract and we all think 2005 seems the younger one. It does opened up a bit with time, and become even more feminine, even more perfume. It is a subtle feeling that I wish I have more bottles to see how it shows in the future.

Different, and I like them both.

This wine definitely fools me as a lowly bourgogne rouge - definitely drinks a class above others, nonetheless as expected from this legendary producer. It is popped and aired for a good half a day before drinking. Rusty garnet color with some bricking and medium legs. What strikes me most about the nose is the concentration and power (very Chambertin-like) - smoked cherries, anise, pepper, roasted coffee beans, bonito, rosemary and strawberries (faint) just leap out from the glass. On the palate, the juice has a a wholesome, delicate structure with good strength and balance between the tannins and the alcohol. Kirsch, leather, asian spice, and copious amounts of tobacco dominate the core. There is moderate acidity in the end to keep things light and fresh too. Finish is a bit short, however. Nonetheless, a great wine and the quality definitely makes it a bargain at this price point (not cheap though).

2012 Red Burgs and a nice 04 (My basement (so we could watch the Cavs East. Conf. Championship): Purchased on release (Brown Derby) for $90. A lot at the time for a Bourgogne. Then the mixed results started to show up for this wine. I let it sit. Did it have greenie meanies? Was it better than most vintages due to declassified wines. The cork was sealed with wax. Good thing as it was soaked up to the top on all sides. I know Leroy's often over fill, so I wasn't too worried about that. The wine is flat and cloudy though. It was opened at the last minute and taken from a rack without being stood up. The nose is very nice. Perhaps the faintest trace of celery, but by no means any offensive greenies with both I and Jeff K. are very sensitive to. No one guessed 04 as a vintage blind. On the palate, this seems to be about at peak. It drinks slightly older than 11 years, in a good way. Layers of earth cherries and dried cherries. Yet, fresh on the palate as well. Nice balance. Probably a bit over priced, but a nice experience. I will count this as one of the good bottles.

Golden. Honey on the nose, saline on the palate. Good intense on the attack but rather short finish. Felt a bit oxidized but drinking well now. Quite enjoyable as an aged white Burg.

"1er" Dinner at the American Club to determine which plots belong to a "Grand Cru" status. Final wine of a great tasting, the best I've had this year. This was my contribution, and any doubts that it might be over the hill were completely unfounded. Translucent red, browning at the rim, but a lovely matured hue. The initial pour was funky, lots of soil and dirt but with underlying matured fruit. With time, the wine evolved nicely. Good rusticity and earth on the palate, with matured fruits, sour cherries, plums, old saddle leather, dried roses, red tea and touch of herbs. This wine, despite being 43 years young, was a lovely representation of what a good, aged Burgundy should be like. It obviously lacked some freshness and vibrancy, but there is enough tannin and structure and fruit to see it to its half century mark. Verdict on Grand Cru worthiness - Doesn't really apply here, and personally, while I adore NSGs for its rusticity and ability to age, I doubt there is any plot here remotely close to a GC standard.

Young, fresh, and vibrant. No resemblance whatsoever to the other notes I've read here -- guess I was lucky to have a bottle that wasn't oxidized.

A bit tight right out of the bottle, softened up and became quite a bit richer with 30 minutes in the glass. Classic Meursault lemon custard notes after opening up.

Every last drop was drunk with smiles around the table. Easy drinking crowd pleaser that pairs well with seafood, and has enough stuffing to stand up to some spice.

Wow! My best bottle to date. Initially somewhat funky with pronounced barnyard but with aeration it revealed a lovely bouquet of all the aromas for which great pinot noir is famous. Soft and balanced with great fruit and nice length. Unfortunately my last bottle.

wow, talk about the ugly duckling growing up into the stunning white swan. Had this in 2007 when I thought it pretty metallic and one-dimensional... my notes read "hang on and hope something happens"
well, 8 years down the track and this wine has blossomed amazingly. Now approaching maturity, it is full of red fruits, Gevrey earth and truffles. Gorgeous length, voluptuous mouth-feel...such a seductive wine.
thank goodness I applied the old Burgundy adage "if it ant no good, just hang on"
easy 96 points, no hurry to consume this one.
