Tasting Notes

    (With thanks to Dr. Reed Day). Much less austere than usual with explosive and slowly maturing aromas of subtle toast| dried herbs and obvious earth notes that combine with big| robust and intense full-bodied flavors that deliver real concentration that is beginning to unfold and while this remains a distinctly textured effort it is begining to open and develop some really lovely finishing complexity. A great effort that is still quite young but is beginning to lose some of its youthful austerity particularly on the wonderfully long finish. Drink: 2013+.

    Burghound, January 2003,
    Score: 94

    As I'm fond of pointing out, no other producer in Burgundy serves their Clos de Vougeot after their Richebourg and while the 2000 was perhaps the finest I have ever tried chez Leroy, the 2001 may very well be just as good. Much less austere than usual with explosive aromas of subtle toast, dried herbs and obvious earth notes that combine with big, robust, fantastically intense full-bodied flavors that deliver unbelievable concentration. This is thick and textured and comes across as a very serious, indeed brooding effort and as impressive as all of these attributes are, it is the length that defines this wine more than any other. It's as if it just won't quit and again, I had to pause before continuing. It doesn't quite have the complexity and refinement of either the Richebourg or the RSV but for raw power, they cannot match this Clos de Vougeot. A great effort.
