    January 26, 2021 - drinking beautifully, it's still got plenty in reserve. long night of drinking so no details but it was one of the better reds we had in an all-star lineup. 96-97

    April 26, 2019 - Boisson Vadot White Wines & A Mix of Old Red Burgundy (Paradise Valley, AZ USA): Served blind. Younger and more oaky at first than the previous wine (which turned out to be '78 Pommard Epenots). This went from being underwhelming to phenomenal with a bit of air. Correctly guessed '85 vintage and Gevrey-Chambertin appellation. This has wonderful black fruit, very classic Gevrey. I thought this was one of the more transparent Leroy wines I've had in some time, very little Lalou "signature" here and very Gevrey.

    March 13, 2019 - This bottle blew me away at the La Paulee Gala 2019. It was in excellent condition and from the little sip I got, I was transported to a quieter more reflective place!! The nose was superb, and the finish went on and on. It was one of if not THE WOTN for me.

    March 9, 2019 - La Paulée de New York Gala Dinner (Pier Sixty - New York NY): Small glass, brief note. Served alongside the Charmes--Chambertin, this wine has more density, but came across as slightly dirty, not quite pristine, and getting tired. Likely a bottle that suffered poor conditions at some point in the past 30 years.
