Critic Notes

Offers more on the nose than the palate, yet it's delicious. Gorgeous aromas of berries and stones. Medium- to full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a berry and earth aftertaste. Best after 1999. James Suckling,Wine Spectator 1998.

Score: 87-/100Wine Spectator

A disturbing pattern appears to be emerging with recent offerings from this chateau. After bottling, the wines are fruitless, ferociously tannic, and completely out of balance. Even the white Domaine de Chevalier seems to be missing the great intensity of flavor and ripeness that one expects from this renowned estate in Pessac-Leognan. A shockingly high oak component obliterates any attempt at discerning the level of fruit that might be present. Yes, the wine is backward, yes, it is light-bodied, yes, the wine hints at having some minerality, but where's the weight, ripeness, and fruit intensity? Feb 1997, www.robertparker.com

Domaine Henri Boillot - Producer Portrait

The combination of small production and picking early comes from a desire to retain vibrancy and energy in the wines over and above riper styles of Chardonnay found elsewhere in the Cotes de Beaune. This mineral driven “understated” yet “explosive” style ...

F+R Visits Domaine Leroy
Visiting Domaine Leroy is a highlight on any fine wine calendar and this year seemed ever more fortunate, finding the 2017s as composed as they will ever be, finishing up their last week of élevage in barrel before bottling planned for next week. On top of that Gilles points out that the 2017s have been the most consistently expressive vintage ...
