2007 Domaine Leroy Clos de la Roche Grand Cru


It’s almost impossible to put into words the significance of Madame Lalou Bize-Leroy in the world of wine. Burgundy authority Clive Coates MW posts that “the greatest domaines of Burgundy today must be those under the control of Lalou Bize: The Domaine Leroy and her own Domaine d’Auvenay”. Having started out as a négociant for the family’s Maison Leroy in the 1950s, Lalou and investors bought the vineyards and winery of Domaine Charles Noëllat in Vosne-Romanée in 1988 and renamed it Domaine Leroy.

96 Points Allen Meadows
Here the nose is completely, even radically different with much more deeply pitched red and blue fruit aromas nuanced by notes of the sauvage, underbrush, leather and tea that are in perfect keeping with the powerful, fresh and sleekly muscled flavors blessed with ample underlying mid-palate sap and a serious, indeed almost brooding quality yet the finish explodes on the phenomenally long backend. This is a comparatively big but balanced effort that should age gracefully for years.

96 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Kirsch, rose hip, and soy intensely scent the Leroy 2007 Clos De La Roche, which reveals brightness and finesse as well as a saline savor unusual for its appellation. To be sure, notes of leather and crushed stone as well as smoked and roasted meats contribute further and perhaps more site-typical complexity. But it’s the sheer finesse, buoyancy, and vibratory energy on display that most amaze, leaving your tongue and gums a quiver and your salivary glands pumping helplessly. There is also a faint hint of heat, but its effect is negligible given what’s going on around you when you swallow (or, in my case, spit). Look for 20 or more years of excitement.
