Domaine Leroy's Bourgogne Rouge is the entry wine of the legendary Domaine, producing one of the best and most expensive wines in the world from Pinot Noir. Lalou-Bize Leroy, who also owns 25% of Domaine de la Romanee Conti, is one of the most respected names in Burgundy and the world, not only for the great wines she has been making but also her strong personality, passion for life and wine, respect for nature and her leading role in biodynamic wine production.
The wine is pure, honest and vibrant, reflecting the Maison’s minimal intervention approach. It is dark with ripe red fruits, strawberries, cherries at the start, earthiness and tar notes follow. This is a generous wine.
If you would like to drink a good Burgundy from Leroy without breaking the bank, this is the one.

Lalou Bize-Leroy stands virtually alone at the top of Burgundy's quality hierarchy... her wines embarrass much of what is produced in Burgundy.” and “Lalou Bize-Leroy. The controversial Lalou must drive many Burgundians crazy given the extraordinary quality of her wines, and the high prices they fetch. She is un uncompromising winemaker, with a portfolio of red and white Burgundies that qualitatively have no peers.” - Robert Parker
