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 Saint Aubin Blanc 2018.

Every wine produced by Maison Leroy is a gustatory event, and this Saint-Aubin Blanc 2018 isn't an exception. Saint-Aubin is a winegrowing village in the south of Côte de Beaune, in the immediate vicinity of Montrachet, an unjustly overlooked appellation that offers a superb alternative to the wines of Chassagne. What's more, if it's vinified by Lalou Bize-Leroy...

2018 was a very early vintage, with very little rainfall and exceptional sunshine. A perfectly ripe Chardonnay is at the origin of this exceptional wine.

Behind a brilliant golden yellow color, the nose opens with aromas of white stone fruits and white flowers. Aeration reveals subtle tropical and buttery notes, hints of match and spices.

With a tight weave, the palate presents a fine, enveloping texture, with plenty of silkiness. Acidity, lively without being sharp, lends freshness to a whole wrapped in a velvety, creamy feel. The palate is filled with juicy white fruits, sweet tropical flavors and toasted nuts, embraced by touches of honey and beeswax. Chalky, saline and mineral notes follow through to a long, persistent finish. A splendid cuvée that will express itself on delicate dishes such as baked sea bream or grilled shellfish.
