Merchant's Pick

THE RECENT PICK

2017 Leroy, Bourgogne Blanc

Burgundy's best needs to introduction.
A blend of Meursault, Puligny, and Savigny Chardonnay.

Extremely Limited.

If you read Wine Spectator, then Leroy needs no introduction.

Leroy is one of the top three Burgundy producers. Along with her daughter, Leroy owns 50% of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (widely known as DRC).

We are one of the few retailers that have this wine. The value of this Bourgogne is second to none; it is a blend of declassified Meursault, Puligny and Savigny Chardonnays.

With her appellation specific wines (such as Puligny and Meursault) fetching as much as $700 per bottle, her Bourgogne Blanc is a dream for white Burgundy fans.

Leroy wines are "classic" Burgundy in that they not only showcase their terroir, but have "beautiful balance, freshness, layers of complexity and length."  Wine Spectator  

Hints of white flower and grapefruit that give way to precise minerality, the finish of her 2017 Bourgogne Blanc lasts on the palate for several minutes revealing subtle apple and pear. Complex Chardonnay fruit and herbal notes deliver excellent length and acidity.

Known for holding her wines and releasing only when they are ready for consumption, the 2017 Bourgogne Blanc is stunning. You can certainly age this beauty, but don't be afraid to chill and enjoy today. 

$87.95 per bottle / $1055.40 per case
