Seriously delicious. Packed with fresh lemon and essential oils on the nose. Loaded with minerality and overall just a hell of a wine — 6 months ago

Domaine d'Auvenay Auxey Duresses Chardonnay 2004

No complaints, delicious with Hokkaido scallop. Still primary but so worth it. Nice complement with 76 DRC echezeaux which was definitely not primary — a year ago

Domaine d'Auvenay Les Narvaux Meursault Chardonnay 2001

Seth Morgen Long
9.7

A rare bottle captured at a great time in its evolution. Not youthful in any sense but not even close to mature. Quite a dark glowing yellow, lots of CO2 and light sediments. The decanter was necessary to open this beast up to a point where the wood and the richness of fruit could mask the ever so slight volatility which was front and center at first, compacting the aromatics. After a couple hours this turned up to 11. Dense, savory and deep aromatics and flavors, tropical tinged stone fruit, extravagantly concentrated, mixed tea and white cocoa, firm wood spice. Quite long, bright acidity but overall a soft and generous, regal, and which doesn’t so much remind me of Meursault Narvaux as it does something with a grand cru designation, but then again in the hands of Lalou, the wines often transcend the appellation. — 2 months ago

Domaine d'Auvenay Sous Chatelet Bourgogne Aligoté 2000

This is Aligote. Fresh and lively with a punch of sulfur and dazzling acidity and a backbone of limestone. On the palate limpid and precise with touches of lime and steel. Not as powerful through the midpalate as some but beautifully balanced and fresh. — 3 months ago

Domaine Leroy

Auxey-Duresses Chardonnay

🏅 Rating: 92/100 (4,2🌟)

Yellowish bright color. Intense aromas of flowers, developing nutty and buttery. Mineral and citrus on the palate. Creamy texture. Fresh and young for its 18yo age.
Once again amazed by the top quality of negociant label of Leroy. Madam Lalou is able to deliver an outstanding quality of wine from sourced grapes.
It outperformed 2002 Chassagne-Montrachet by Marquis de Laguiche tasted together, which has a more prestigious terroir.

Leroy looked much younger with lots of potential!
