Domaine Leroy

The history of Maison Leroy began in 1968 when François Leroy, winemaker and owner of vineyards in Pommard, Meursault, Chambertin, Musigny, Clos de Vougeot and Richebourg, decided to create a structure with the aim of expanding.

During the second part of the twentieth century, his son's efforts were rewarded with various medals and Grands Prix in both France and Belgium. However, it was not until the arrival of Henri Leroy in 1919, the third generation, that things really changed. Highly invested in the business, he led it to a meteoric rise.

A few years later, in 1942, Maison Leroy became the owner of half the shares in Romanée-Conti's Domaine. Henry would devote the rest of his life to the estate, giving his all to create the jewel we know today.

Lalou Bize-Leroy, Henri's daughter and a grande dame of the Burgundy wine world, joined the adventure in 1955. She quickly followed in her father's footsteps, becoming President and General Manager of Maison Leroy as well as co-manager of Romanée-Conti Domaine. An unrivalled taster and connoisseur of the terroirs of Bourgogne, she will always strive for the best. This quest for perfection led her in 1988 to buy several Domaines and cultivate them biodynamically, making her a pioneer in the field.

Topping out at 21 hectares 99 ares 66 centiares, Domaine Leroy today boasts 9 Grands Crus, 8 Premiers Crus, 9 Villages and a few generic Bourgognes. With its racy terroirs, it offers us each vintage confidential cuvées of incredible richness.

Description Maison Leroy Beaune Premier Cru "Les Montrevenots" 2018.

The very image of Bourgogne and the capital of its wine, Beaune boasts one of the most extensive vineyards on the Côte. Climat "Les Montrevenots" is located in the very south of the appellation, just up the hill from the famous Clos des Mouches. At around 300 meters above sea level, it's one of the highest Premiers Crus in the commune, producing wines renowned for their suppleness and freshness.

Each wine produced by Maison Leroy is a gustatory event, and this Beaune Premier Cru is no exception. 2018 was a very early vintage, with very little rainfall and exceptional sunshine. A pinot noir at perfect ripeness gave birth to this magnificent wine.

Behind a beautiful, rich garnet-red color, lovely aromas of crushed red fruit and ripe black fruit are revealed on the nose. There are hints of pomegranate and blood orange, which radiate freshness. Light touches of coffee, earth and spicy chocolate emerge and contribute to the complexity of the whole, in an immense refinement.

The palate is soft and sensual, with extremely supple tannins that cajole the palate. Wonderful acidity from the outset accompanies us all the way, imparting enormous freshness to a dense, juicy fruitiness. Tender, gourmet aromas of tangy red berries reach us through the retronasal passage and continue right through to the sapid, mineral finish.

This Beaune Premier Cru "Les Montrevenots" 2018 will make a superb pairing as a starter with a lamb terrine, or during the meal with a Burgundian potée.
