2006 Domaine Leroy Les Genaivrières  (Vosne-Romanée) 90

With notes of brown sugar, spice, coffee, licorice, red and dark berries and earth, the wine started off well. But after 45 minutes to an hour in the glass, the tannins were noticeably drying and green flavors appeared in the finish.

2001 Domaine Leroy Romanée St. Vivant  (Romanée St. Vivant Grand Cru) 93

Bright, fresh, ripe red berries, caramel, spice, earth and pronounced floral notes lead you to a silky, soft, polished, spicy wine that is almost there, but comes up short in the finish.

2000 Domaine Leroy Clos Vougeot  (Clos Vougeot Grand Cru) 92

Light in color, with some bricking already apparent, the wine is all about the nose with its showy cherry, strawberry, pepper, earth, pepper and mint perfume. Medium bodied, with silky textures, the wine comes up a bit short in the sweet, cherry dominated finish.

1999 Domaine Leroy Clos de la Roche  (Clos de la Roche Grand Cru) 95

Plush and polished, with a mineral driven, smoky, red fruit nose with forest, spice and elements on cold steel on the nose. The lushly textured, fresh cherry finish lingers.

1998 Domaine Leroy Clos de la Roche  (Clos de la Roche Grand Cru) 95

Forward, open, fat, sweet, lush and silky, with a purity of fruit and round, spicy, kirsch, earth, cherry and strawberry finish.

1998 Domaine Leroy Clos Vougeot  (Clos Vougeot Grand Cru) 90

Murky in color and more interesting on the nose than the palate with its spice, earth, thyme and strawberry personality, the wine finishes with tart cherries ad cranberry in the finish.

1990 Domaine Leroy Romanée St. Vivant  (Romanée St. Vivant Grand Cru) 95

Other than shocking high price, it's hard to find fault with this wine. Probably close to maturity, with a vibrant nose of kirsch liqueur, licorice, smoked cherries, wood, earth, flowers and spice, the wine is silky, lush, bright, fresh and polished and ready to deliver its charms to anyone willing to pop a cork.

1990 Domaine Leroy Corton-Charlemagne  (Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru) 95

Splendid example of a fully mature, white Burgundy. Looking like spun gold, crushed stone, citrus peel, honeysuckle and green apple notes created the aromatics. Sweet, lush and concentrated, the wine felt low in acidity with its plush textured, ripe, citrus finish. Holding this longer is probably not a good idea.
