Leroy Clos de Vougeot 1999
Cote de Nuits
"Very primary, ripe, fresh, earthy, spicy and highly expressive aromas complement equally ripe, big-bodied and still firmly tannic flavors that possess superb depth and outstanding length. This is a serious wine and while it doesn't have quite as much austerity that is typical of still youthful Clos de Vougeot, it will probably require the better part of 10 years to realize its full potential and it may very well require more time than that. Thanks to the buckets of dry extract, the intense flavors are supple and really quite delicious but it doesn't take a gifted taster to discern the solid tannic spine that lurks beneath the sap. A really fine effort that should age, and drink, gracefully for years to come. Consistent notes." Burghound, 94 pts. 05/10
