"Leroy stands virtually alone at the top of Burgundy’s quality hierarchy... Anyone who loves great Burgundy must realize that her wines embarrass much of what is produced in Burgundy.” Robert Parker
Along with her daughter, Lalou Bize-Leroy owns 50% of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (widely known as DRC).
The 2019 Maison Leroy Bourgogne Blanc is a riveting blend of Leroy's declassified Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, and Savigny Chardonnays. We are one of only a few retailers that have this new and highly anticipated release.
Known for holding her wines and releasing them only when they are ready for consumption, the 2019 Bourgogne Blanc is stunning. Hints of white flower and grapefruit give way to precise minerality. The Puligny fruit adds vibrancy and the Meursault adds texture. The palate lasts for several minutes revealing subtle apple and pear. Complex fruit and herbal notes deliver excellent length and acidity.
With her appellation specific wines (such as Puligny and Meursault) fetching $700 per bottle and up, her Bourgogne Blanc is a dream for white Burgundy fans. And, it should be stressed that her Bourgognes rival and best some of the finest appellation specific Burgundies on the market.
Leroy wines are "classic" Burgundy. They not only showcase their terroir, but have "beautiful balance, freshness, layers of complexity and length." Wine Spectator
You can certainly age this beauty; but if you open it now, you are in for a real treat.
