Tasting Notes

Maison Leroy is a négociant house steered by the indomitable Lalou Bize-Leroy. She only works with growers whose farming and fruit meet her exacting standards. About her 2011 vintage from Allen Meadows: "Lalou Bize-Leroy rarely has much to say about vintages these days as she mostly just concludes that each of them have their own personalities and that should be a sufficient explanation for what transpired. For 2011 specifically, she did concede that yields were a bit more generous than usual at between 24 and 25 hl/ha but that the growing season did cause some angst. As to the style of the wines, she likens that to her 2006s, calling them 'elegant, fresh and refined wines that will age on their balance.' After almost 20 years of visiting the domaine, I am rarely surprised by the typically stupendous quality but I confess that Mme Leroy so far out-performed the general quality of the vintage that it would have been easy to assume that we were tasting a more illustrious one. It's not so much that the wines are powerhouses of exceptional concentration, so much as they are just so harmonious and seamless that you can't help but admire their grace and inner beauty. The descriptor "stunning" isn't praise enough when you put this kind of quality in the context of the 2011 vintage. If you can find them, and then afford them, don't miss them." (04/2013)
