Domaine Leroy

flagBurgundy / France

Domaine Leroy’s only white, the 2002 Corton-Charlemagne, reveals a nose of fresh herbs, spices, minerals, linden, and stones. Magnificently fresh and medium-bodied, this wine exhibits great concentration to its stone, mineral, and pear-flavored character. Like many young wines from this terroir, it is youthfully austere, yet exhibits a depth of fruit, balance, and an extraordinarily long finish of exceptional quality. Admirers of Madame Leroy’s Corton-Charlemagne will be interested to know that she says that she barely presses the grapes and never performs a decanting off of gros lees (debourbage).||Note: This estate’s 2002s are not yet released. The above estimate is based on the prices of the 2001s, taking into account that the dollar has significantly dropped. Wine Advocate.June, 2004
