Domaine Leroy

La storia della Maison Leroy ha inizio nel 1968 quando François Leroy, viticoltore e proprietario di vigneti a Pommard, Meursault, Chambertin, Musigny, Clos de Vougeot e Richebourg, decide di creare una struttura con l'obiettivo di espandersi.

Nella seconda parte del XX secolo, gli sforzi del figlio furono premiati con varie medaglie e Grands Prix sia in Francia che in Belgio. Tuttavia, è solo con l'arrivo di Henri Leroy nel 1919, la terza generazione, che le cose cambiano davvero. Pochi anni dopo, nel 1942, la Maison Leroy divenne proprietaria della metà delle azioni del Domaine Romanée-Conti. Henry avrebbe dedicato il resto della sua vita alla tenuta, dando tutto se stesso per creare il gioiello che conosciamo oggi.

Lalou Bize-Leroy, figlia di Henri e grande dama del mondo del vino di Borgogna, si unì all'avventura nel 1955. Ha seguito rapidamente le orme del padre, diventando presidente e direttore generale della Maison Leroy e co-gestore del Domaine Romanée-Conti. Assaggiatrice e conoscitrice impareggiabile dei terroir della Borgogna, si impegna sempre per ottenere il meglio. Questa ricerca della perfezione l'ha portata nel 1988 ad acquistare diversi domini e a coltivarli in modo biodinamico, diventando così una pioniera del settore.

Con 21 ettari e 66 ettari, il Domaine Leroy vanta oggi 9 Grands Crus, 8 Premiers Crus, 9 Villages e alcuni Bourgognes generici. Con i suoi terroir di razza, ci offre ogni annata cuvée confidenziali di incredibile ricchezza.

Descrizione Domaine Leroy Pommard Village "Les Vignots" 2014

Trova qui sotto il commento di Neal Martin di WineAdvocate in inglese del 31 dicembre 2015:

"The 2014 Pommard les Vignots has a very elegant bouquet, very pure and self-contained with bright red cherry fruit.

The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and acidity, red cherry and a touch of spice on the structured, slightly brittle finish. Very fine.

Instantly I saw that they cellar was occupied by a few more barrels than last year, the yields a tad higher at a still very modest 21 hectoliters per hectare.

Lalou told me that July and August was rather poor in terms of the weather, but matters improved after August 15 and that she ended up picking from September 17. "I like the 2014s a lot.

They are very 'jolie'," she tells me, flitting between barrels, making sure that each is not too reduced before giving the nod to pour into my glass.

"But the 2014s are different to the 2013s. They were more 'gentile.' I find these a little more tannic than the 2013s, with very good acidity levels.

The pH was around 3.30. I find the very precise with lovely fruit." Lalou traditionally bottles earlier than her peers and she told me that she intends to bottle in December.

Though there was some reduction to overcome, it is clear that the 2014s represent a very fine vintage for the domaine and I found the wines as Lalou described, full of energy and nervousness, precise and mineral-driven, not overtly powerful wines but with what you might call "streamlined intensity" -- and often deliriously silky-smooth textures.

No doubt there will be difficultly to find and warrant a second mortgage, but these are seriously fine expressions of the vintage crafted by a one-off who truly deserves the title of 'legend.'

As you expect, these are wines that, like Lalou, are full of energy despite the reduction that one inevitably encounters out of barrel.

They are very terroir-specific, perhaps not abiding by the Burgundy hierarchy as much as other vintages; that is to say, some of the premier crus I thoughts ranked equal to the grand crus and vice versa.

The grands crus are exceptional, especially the Richebourg, which ranks as one of the finest 2014s that I tasted.

This is closely followed by the Romanée-Saint-Vivant, Musigny and Chambertin, incidentally the latter augmented by a new acquisition that the domaine are currently converting to biodynamic viticulture.

Some of the village crus are truly wonderful and I was particularly taken with the Nuits-Saint-Georges Aux Allots this year".
