It’s almost impossible to put into words the significance of Madame Lalou Bize-Leroy in the world of wine. Burgundy authority Clive Coates MW posits that "the greatest domaines of Burgundy today must be those under the control of Lalou Bize: The Domaine Leroy and her own Domaine d'Auvenay". Having started out as a négociant for the family's Maison Leroy in the 1950s, Lalou and investors bought the vineyards and winery of Domaine Charles Noëllat in Vosne-Romanée in 1988 and renamed it Domaine Leroy. “At Domaine Leroy, we have been cultivating our vines under biodynamic conditions since 1989," says Lalou. "This means that our wines are free of all chemical treatments, weed killers, pesticides, fungicides, insecticides and artificial fertilisers. Instead, we have stepped back in time and use cosmic rhythms to ensure correct soil tilling and recuperation as well as effective vine care through all phases of the year's cycle.” 

An expressive nose redolent of Savigny style earth with all of its pungency combines with black fruit that is spicy and pure and dissolves into textured, delicious and remarkably powerful flavors where the dry extract is palpable, all wrapped in a big and powerful finish that delivers a real sense of volume and terrific vibrancy. This is a big wine yet one that is balanced and relatively refined for what it is yet with the structure to age. (90-93)/2015+
