Domaine Leroy – Romanée-Saint-Vivant 2006

Lalou Bize-Leroy needs no introduction to a winelover, her wines are as flamboyant as her personality. Even now, at the age of 89, she still visits the vineyards and is unstoppable.

Domaine Leroy was raised in 1988 after taking over the vineyards of Charles Noëllat in Vosne-Romanée and of Philippe-Rémy in Gevrey-Chambertin. Today the domain features almost 22 hectares in the most prestigious appellations. Lalou immediately turns all vineyards to biodynamic farming, unheard of in Burgundy in those days.

Nearly 1 hectares of pinot noir of the finest quality from the grand cru Romanée-Saint-Vivant vineyard is hers. In somewhat challenging years, like 2006, Lalou knows how to get the best out of the grapes and to produce world class wines.

“Great Romanée St. Vivant is arguably the classiest and most refined wine in all of Burgundy and yes, I include Musigny, Romanée-Conti and La Tâche in that comparison. Words honestly do not do justice to the sheer brilliance of the notably ripe kaleidoscopic nose that seamlessly combines a remarkable array of spices with the floral purple fruit aromas that serve as the perfect introduction to delicate, pure and mineral suffused flavors brimming with an underlying tension that provides a genuine sense of relief to the fantastically detailed finish that seems to go on and on without end. This is "thrill a second" quality juice and the class of the Leroy cellar in 2006” - 98/100, Allen Meadows, Burghound
