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.

Tasting Notes

The powerful but pretty Maison Leroy Bourgogne Rouge 2014 was released a year later than the ’15 as Madame felt it needed more time. Shades of both light and dark, with coolness at the same time as brooding, dark earthy tones. Spicy cherry and blackberry fruit over gravel. Good sense of depth to the palate, which has immediate power and firm acidity to kick it along. Chewy but fine tannins frame the palate of this modern and fresh Bourgogne Rouge with substance and presence.
