Maison Leroy Bourgogne Rouge is the entry wine of the legendary Maison Leroy, producing one of the best and most expensive wines in the world from Pinot Noir.

Lalou-Bize Leroy is one of the most respected name 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 follows. This is a generous wine.

If you would like to drink a good Burgundy from Leroy without breaking the bank, this is the one.

QUEEN OF BURGUNDY - LALOU BIZET LEROY

  Domaine Leroy is one of the most prestigious names in the whole of Burgundy. Commanding occasionally eye-wateringly expensive prices and garnering impossibly high praise from virtually every wine critic that has tasted them. The quotes speak for themselves:    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   Leroy produces the most exclusive and highly-sought after wines of Burgundy. Across the vintages and throughout their entire range, their tiny output and immense quality mean an almost perfect storm where supply can never meet demand. This means that inevitably initial allocations disappear into private cellars immediately on release.   Leroy holds three entities: Domaine d’Auvenay, the original Domaine Leroy and the Maison Leroy Collection.  Domaine Leroy forms the top tier and for many the pinnacle of Burgundian wine. The Maison Leroy Collection, a continuation of her father’s négociant business, is the “insider” buy and offers an affordable entry to the domain.
