Pinot Noir  |  France

Act Fast, Only 14 Left!

Heads up! We’re talking just over TWO cases available here. And when you’re talking Leroy Pommard, from the exceptional 5 stars 2009 vintage – that will NOT be enough!

Madame Lalou Bize-Leroy is Burgundian royalty who needs no introduction. Maison Leroy is the epitome of Burgundy’s negociant game, which also happens to craft spectacular wines from their own estate (under Domaine Leroy). Oh yeah, to top it off, Madame Bize-Leroy is the matriarch of the family that just happens to own 50% of D.R.C.! For all wines under the Leroy portfolio, she rigorously sets the standard on aging and finishing all wines ever since she took over for her father, Henri, in 1971. There is no question that she has earned the moniker “The Queen of Burgundy”.

Her legendary palate and unyielding standards have made her and the wines she fashions the benchmark across nearly every village, commune, and cru in Burgundy. Pinot noir winemakers and wineries the world over taste their own products side-by-side with Leroy as a proverbial measuring stick...and only the very best come close. To have any of this wine, especially a cellared and ready beauty like these 2009s...we are simply dumbstruck! 2009 provided an embarrassment of natural riches – a perfectly calm spring led to a brilliant flowering, and the summer followed with no significant heat or mildew stress. Hail struck bits of Morey and Gevrey, but Pommard was spared entirely. Harvest was full, and the fruit was immediately showing its quality. The question was never “good or bad?” but rather “how good?” Now, over a decade into bottle, there is no question – these wines are tremendous, and top producers like Leroy produced some of the finest wines in their long history. Seriously, just a couple bottles over TWO CASES! Those who know Leroy will snatch these up in an instant!

About the Producer

Maison Leroy was founded in 1868 by Francois Leroy, who was also the winemaker and owner of vines at Auxey-Duresses. He also owned vines in Meursault, Pommard, Chambertin, Musigny, Clos Vougeot and Richebourg. Not only did the family make wine but also dabbled in the liquors and distilled alcohol business. They made eau-de-vie near Cognac and established a distillery at Segonzac in Champagne. Henri, the grandson of Francois, was the one that purchased some parcels of Domaine Romanee-Conti making him the half owner of the domaine. Henri put his heart and soul at DRC, with his daughter Lalou becoming the President Directeur General at Domaine Leroy while also helping her father at DRC. Lalou is a force to be reckoned with. Lalou is the conductor behind Maison Leroy, Domaine Leroy and Domaine d'Auvenay. Lalou has since expanded the vineyards at Domaine Leroy 54 acres (some speculate on the actual size), mostly Premier Cru and Grand Cru. She has also since switched to Biodynamic farming and has been a big proponent of this holistic approach. Her profound belief is that "everything is alive: the soil, the grounds, plants,.." "as alive as animals and humans..." The result is incredibly low yields of extremely concentrated yet refined wines with a rare purity of fruit which are some of the most highly prized wines in Burgundy today.
