    April 15, 2019 - I have been lucky enough to taste this wine numerous times. Tonight’s bottle is one of the best yet. The color continues to lighten with an ocher tint. The nose shows abundant sweet red fruits with surprisingly little herbaceousness. Still has that wonderful, savory nature. The palate follows the nose and seems perfectly mature. With the prices her wines fetch today, this is a wonderful and affordable introduction to the nectar that is Leroy. Very similar to the last bottles tasted. In the zone. (94)

    January 23, 2019 - What depth for a "Bourgogne"! So good. Great story of this wine. Google it. Drinking great. SO good!

    January 29, 2018 - A remarkable wine in many ways. The colour is odd - cloudy, quite pale and very bricky/orangey, looks 30 years old not 14. The weight is on the light side (12.5%) and of course the content is unique - Pommard villages, Savigny1e, Clos Vgt, Clos de la Roche all mixed in one. But the nose is pure floral perfume, some torrefaction, the palate ripe, sour creamy and extremely elegant. it is quite delicious and beautifully Burgundian and gives more mortals at least a glimpse of what Mme Bize-Leroy's saintly grand crus can do in the worst vintage of the century so far. There are no green meanies here, no pyrazines, no ladybird taint, just pure, elegant pinot fruit and supreme balance. Yes, remarkable on all counts.

    October 16, 2017 - Similar note, but this time the balance and concentration was so great

Burgundy-Report

    (Leroy Bourgogne Rouge) Medium-pale colour - surprisingly pale considering it contains (lots of) Grand Cru juice. The nose is fantasticly penetrating and floral, eventually turning very smoky from a high percentage of stems. The palate is lithe and athletic, perhaps a little thin for the forward acidity. I really expected more intensity given the provenance of this wine. A fantastic nose, in the end it really reminded me of Dujac’s ‘95 Clos de la Roche, but for this bottle the palate has a lot of catching up to do. The nose compelled me to buy a couple of bottles but I’m still not convinced of the value.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Domaine Leroy Bourgogne Rouge) This is the first Domaine bottled Bourgogne ever. Priced like a Leroy wine at probably around $75 ish retail. But whose Bourgogne Rouge tastes like great Grand Cru red burg. Stunning nose of spicey oak, red fruits, nuts, minerals and some exotic spices. Really aromatically complex stuff. Palate was very youthful but had pure sappy fruit and a huge midpalate. Great integration of all the parts and kickin' finish.
