1972 Maison Leroy Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru

Pinot Noir more

5/22/2015 - Mark81 wrote: 92 points

"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.

I had never heard of Maranges. It just goes to show how important the maker is, more important than appellation and vintage. Light and intense with a beautiful long aftertaste. Quite delicious.

5/5/2015 - Xavier94 wrote: 89 points

This particular bottle never fully opened out like others; Sweet, musky cherry notes of wet tree bark, forest wood, dried chocolate, mint and meat juices come through with time. Hints of moss, leaves and a gentle dusting of herbs show complexity and intrigue but not as much focus as other bottles of this has shown previously. Shows a bit of smoky minerality towards the finish, very irony. Firm grip on the backend and structure doesn't seem to be as integrated.

Opened for dinner at Allred's after 4th Saturday group. The fourth time is the charm. The prior three bottles were complete crap and almost undrinkable. This was from another planet. Very elegant with soft red fruits and floral notes on the nose and palate.

Alas, this the last of the 6 bottles I purchased in June of 2011. This bottle was perhaps the best of the the lot and very similar to the 6/15/11 bottle.

Lots of Gevrey character with black fruit, hints of game sausage and sauvage, but also more advanced, less nuanced than I'd expect from a top notch 1999.

Double decanted for 3 to 3 1/2 hours and displaying a very pretty nose of dirty, earthy, greenish black cherry with undertones of asian spice. Tonight the palate is all rustic, sauvage dark fruit, earth and leather. The tannins on the long finish are firm and chalky. This has a lot of stuffing and is drinking far above its level( top level village or perhaps even 1er cru) and is just barely coming into its own. This has a lot of forward looking potential.

By the glass at RPM Steak. The list said "Leroy" and I was too distracted to ask whether it was the Domaine or Maison bottling (oops). I'm gonna go ahead and assume it was the Maison. Moderately advanced golden colour. The nose is mostly dominated by ripe stone fruit aromas. The palate has the same ripe fruit character, but it's tempered by a moderate dose of minerality and lively yellow-toned acids (think golden apples). Excellent and approachable now.

I had not had the Maison BM yet. Lovely, although flat compared to the Domaine, nose of dark fruit, earth, oak and subtle spice. This opened and took on more spice and complexity with time, but never became sexy in the way I wanted it to.

The last and best bottle of the 6 I've had over the years. Bright and dizzying aromatics of white flowers, lemon zest, tropical fruits and a stunning salinity almost briny on the nose. medium weight with intense and laser focused minerality. Acid and fruit are perfectly balanced and finish is minute plus. Likely hit its peak. Have had several bottles not as balanced and in such harmony.

Typical leroy stems, green grassy note, musky and bright red fruits. The greenness of '11 leroy is intensifying from Bourgogne to village wine. Aftertaste was a bit short. Drink up before the greenness intensifies.
