  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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.
