With hints of white flower and grapefruit that give way to precise minerality, the finish lasts on the palate for several minutes revealing subtle apple and pear. A complex nose of Chardonnay fruit and herbal notes combines with delicious, solidly concentrated flavors that deliver excellent length and acidity.
Lalou BIZE-LEROY, Henri’s daughter, joined the family business, Maison Leroy, in 1955. She became President-Directeur General en 1971. With great devotion and a lot of work, through constant tasting, she undertook to understand the essential characteristics of each “terroir” from each vineyard of Burgundy. For Maison Leroy, still today, she searches unceasingly to purchase the best wines, and for her the best is always yet to come.
Furthermore, each week, she would accompany her father to Domaine Romanée-Conti of which she became, along with Aubert de Villain, Co-Gerante from 1974 to 15 January 1992, when she was ousted mainly because she owned a competing brand that rivals DRC's greatness, Domaine Leroy. Maison Leroy distributed Domaine Romanée-Conti’s wines world-wide (except the United States and Great Britain) until 15 Janaury 1992.
This is a wine made by an indescribably talented woman who co-ran DRC and owns and makes Domaine Leroy. Making the top two wines of the greatest wine region on the planet is enough to trust what she produces.
