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 Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru "Sous le Puits" 2019.

Every wine produced by Lalou Bize-Leroy is a gustatory event, and this Puligny-Montrachet 2018 is no exception. This appellation shares with Chassagne the most perfect expression of Chardonnay. At the top of the Blagny hill at an altitude of almost 400 meters, on the edge of the forest, Climat "Sous le Puits" dominates the hillside of the village of Puligny-Montrachet and is the highest Premier Cru located. 

Highly impacted by climatic hazards, 2019 is characterized by a low harvest. A Chardonnay in excellent health, with perfect sugar/acidity balance and ripeness, gave birth to this exceptional wine. 

Armorizing a golden yellow color with light green highlights, this great Puligny-Montrachet opens with fruity aromas evoking apricot, pear and lime. Notes of resin, salted butter caramel, spices and smoke subtly join the picture. Dense and full-bodied, the texture on the palate is magnificent, simultaneously fat and fluid, thanks in particular to the sharp acidity that gives it freshness and balance. The palate sporadically releases ripe fruit, white fruit and citrus. The intensity of the fruit is moderate, restrained but absolutely precise. It's not exuberant, it's pure, with a huge touch of iodized minerality on the finish, accompanied by a few hints of spice. Irresistible.

A very great wine, which will appreciate a few hours of decanting, and will happily lend itself to a pairing with seabass pan-fried with lemongrass, or lobster with citrus butter.
