Wow. This was drinking perfectly last night. Stood up to, or surpassed a '96 Leroy Richebourg served alongside. Full flavor of both black and red fruits, with plenty of earth and oak, a peppery underside and a great finish. Fantastic for the finish and (if the word can be used at this price point) an actual value in the pantheon of the very best burgundies. A surprise for this vintage. Drink right now, or over the next few years and you'll be greatly rewarded.

Baller dinner honoring Chicago winos -- 99 La Tache, 99 Leroy RSV, 07 SE & etc (The Grill Room at Capella Hotel Georgetown): This has to be the most complete and hedonistic wine of the flight at the moment. Expressive nose displaying perfectly ripe red and black fruits, powder sugar, candied lavender petals, dark spices, a hint of soy, tree bark, stem and earth. Excellent concentration, youthful yet perfectly harmonious palate, intense dark berry driven palate impression, tannins masked by intense sweet fruits and seamless finish that lasts. Noticeable Leroy signatures, ie intense sweet fruits, floral, baking spices and etc. Really hedonistic wine.

Favre 3.0 Friday Night.: Lush and sexy, but not as structured as expected. And drinking any 91 Leroy is a pleasure.

Deep red in color, and with an even deeper nose. Amazing nose with a wide array of floral notes and spices. Would have been an amazing wine even by Leroy standards IF I havent tried the 02 version of this wine which is slightly purer and with just a little more concentration and elegance. With slight undergrowth tones which is not detectable in the 02 version. Very very long finish and silk like texture.

My 2nd bottle from Japan bottle No. 00003 and shows more dense in nose and body than the last bottle buying from France.

Even I prefer the elegant and sweetness like Romanee-Conti from 1st bottle tasting but this time is more detail and more powerful with 3 layers aftertaste.

Mmm...it's great wine for sure and very good to drink now. It may close again next year.

Drink 2019 - 30 years+

I might have been a bit too enthusiastic with my last tasting note. That said this is a wonderful wine with superb spice and floral notes on the nose. There is so much going on in the mouth, but it does lack a bit of precision. Lots of detail, but without serious order and harmony. Fabulous grip and texture on the long finish.

A real eye opener for me. I love Leroy, but this took it to new heights. Incredibly complex and fascinating nose of spice, earth, flowers, more spice, red and blue fruit and more spice. The palate was sweet and broad, extremely detailed and fresh and bright. Wonderful grip and the finish lasted for 2 minutes. Layered and complex with perfect balance. Just love the sweet spice. Today at least, this blows away the 2001 DRC RSV we had the night before.

This is showing even better than the bottle last year. What a crazy nose, with loads and loads of roses and spices, you are basically standing in the middle of a floral garden. Driving palate best described as an iron fist inside a velvet glove. Powerful yet without weight, simply unbelievable. Looking forward to trying this again in a few years.

Absolutely superb spice on the nose and vibrant red and black fruit notes. Interesting floral component. Wonderfully bright fruit on the palate and a very sexy texture. Love the energy and verve. More approachable than the 1990 we had a couple nights ago. Very long finish with fabulous grip. Best 98 red Burg I have had.

Eight (Not Angry) Men Drinking Great Wine (Paris Club - Chicago IL): Wow, what an alluring wine. Perfumed with enticing spice aromas, intense black fruit and a hint of cherry liqueur. Intense and incredibly powerful, this is slightly hedonistic and one dimensional now, but there is so much youthful energy and concentration that I'm confident nuance will emerge as this wine hits its peak stride, probably after 2025. I had the '93 recently, which might be a more exciting bottle of Burgundy today, but I think this 1990 will be better long-term.

Friday Night Dinner with Friends (Chez Schmidt - Chicago IL): Open an hour+ before serving. Sensational perfume and spice aromatic start with moderately mature red fruit. Slightly more mature flavors of both red and black cherry. Acidity and elegant tannins are very well integrated. Silky, long finish with great textures. At a great place now.

Stunning nose of bright red fruit, sweet spice, a bit of iron and mushroom. Rich and vibrant on the palate. Loads of spice. Great energy. Round and big in the mouth. More earth and dark fruit. Touch of tannin on the long long finish. Beautiful wine that has a long way to go.

With the Burgundy wine group at Imperial Treasure over the best Chinese meal this year. An ex domaine release. A lovely bright red, this looked like it was just bottled! On the nose, it was mind blowing. The typical Leroy nose - intense, floral, deep, rich and absolutely captivating. The palate was no slouch. This was initially served too cold, but as it warmed in the glass, I had no doubts this would be sensational. It was elegant in a Musigny way, but had the structure, the depth, the complexity and the length. The tannins were strong but there was immense fruit, very fresh. The balance was the key. When the table consumed the wine, there was silence. That spoke volumes. This is the best wine I have had this year. I have a single bottle left, and this will be opened in 2029.

This bottle 2007 is very good to drink at this moment. Opens up very beautiful scent of Leroy's flowers, silky texture, very elegant and linger long finished. Better than I expected.

Is it like Romanee-Conti in the years of Leroy ?

Mmmm...It could be...

I will go back to buy 2 more bottles.

Drink now - 2040............94++/100................

Well, I suppose the big news is that every thought it "bested" the DRC Romanee St. Vivant served right along side. Both were exceptional, this one just had more of everything. And noticeably more of everything too. One could claim the DRC was more refined, but I think that would be damning with false praise.

This bottle took a very long time to show is stuff. However, it did come around and the nose alone took me away! 91 burgs when they hit are special and this was no exception. The nose had a deep tarnished leather and load black cherry aroma to it, Leroy spice was very subtle. At the end, the wine had considerable length. Still has plenty of life.

Huge smoky/sappy lift to the aroma. It has ripe and dense raspberry and cherry fruits. It is full, intense and luscious in the mouth with powerful red and black fruit flavours cut with a little flora. It has just a hint of 97 sweet and sour about it finishing with a tart snap.

We drank the 91 DRC RSV and 1991 Leroy RSV side by side. The Leroy was the clear winner, but these are both smoking bottles from what for me is an outstanding burgundy vintage. Either of these would be in WOTN category for most dinners. A nice treat to enjoy them together.

Stewy and a concerning mix of being loose and not ready. Not exciting today, I wonder if it will be more interesting in 20 years? It is so dark and opaque that it makes one wonder if it really is all Pinot. On the palate it has huge size, cumbersome even ... occasional moments where it was interesting, but a bit like dancing with a bear. Clearly not a wine to buy but if you own it, cellar it for 10-20 years and pray (or sell it for a large return!)
