Very rich and plump. Tannins fully resolved. Ripe dark fruits and cinnamon on the nose. This was a bit disjointed upon opening but meshed together with a few hours of air. Wife tasted blind and simply proclaimed “this tastes expensive” so the Leroy signature is clearly strong on this one... — a month ago
Awesome wine from Leroy, even though the price is almost 40 time from when it’s released. Great beautiful wine ! — 4 days ago
Pale gold with minuscule bubbles and lush creaminess. The nose is a bit closed in at first but blossoms over time showcasing delicate white flowers, pears, and really nice apples. After more time passes, the nose begins to evolve with more than of smokiness and pepper. Lemons, limes, and strawberry and it ends with an intoxicating bit of honey. 3/4 Pinot Noir and the rest Chardonnay.
A grower from the Cotes Des Bar with very small production but insanely high quality. The terroir of Aube real speaks here and the low dosage of 4 g/l allows for that expression. Based of the 2017 vintage and disgorged in early 2020. It feels so youthful in the mouth and you just know this has many years to go.
Wonderfully harmonious despite the youthful nature of this champagne, it all comes together in the mouth. Crisp and round, the acidity is pleasingly bracing. More pears and honeyed apples all over this. Citrus fruits steal the show but the chalky minerality and savory notes are showstoppers as well. A beautiful champagne, one you won’t want to stop drinking. Stock up. — a month ago
Ages well. Toasted caramel. Undertones of hay and chalk. Dry with mild acidity. Well balanced — a month ago
Disgorged oct 2018.
Dark straw color. Quite some mousse. What a difference a strawberry makes 😀. Agree with other tasters there is quite some apple in it (the ripe, bruised, October style of apple). Interesting nose with even some toasted wood, herbish in its style. Interesting glass of champagne with a lingering finish of over a minute. — a month ago
