Reviews 92 points Wine Advocate "Unfurling in the glass with aromas of pear and citrus oil that are framed by a touch of nutty reduction, the 2016 Bourgogne Aligote Sous Chatelet is medium to full-bodied, satiny and searingly intense, with terrific depth, concentration and chewy dry extract, concluding with a long finish. More reductive and acid-driven than the 2015 rendition in style, it's more reminiscent of the 2014. It will reward with bottle age. (WK)"
From 1868 on, several generations of men led the Domaine, and acquired key vineyards; most notably, the prestigious Romanee Conti vineyard. However, it wasn’t until our “Queen of Burgundy,” Lalou Bize-Leroy took over, that the Domaine broke the glass ceiling.
Lalou Bize-Leroy is many things; once a partner in Domaine de la Romanee Conti, she is one of few female winemakers/owners in Burgundy, an extreme perfectionist, and an absolute trailblazer. Some might call her controversial, as she has pushed the boundaries of Burgundy with strict biodynamic farming since 1988 and meticulous natural winemaking in the cellar ahead of her time. The results are lauded by critics and collectors alike, including Robert Parker, who has observed that “her wines embarrass much of what is produced in Burgundy,” and “qualitatively have no peers.”
Whether you acquire a bottle of Domaine Leroy, Maison Leroy, or Domaine d'Auvenay, you can trust that these sumptuous, pure wines will impress with their length and profound complexity.
