Lot #113. Domaine Leroy Chambertin 2008

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 98 AM.
"An exceptionally fresh, cool and restrained nose of intense floral notes, beautiful red berry fruit, earth, underbrush and wet stone hints trimmed in subtle touches of wood introduces absolutely lovely, classy and pure massively-sized flavors that are built on a base of minerality, all wrapped in a vibrant, very firmly structured and hugely long finish where there is an almost palpable sense of the underlying tension and energy. I really like the manner in which a borderline massive wine delivers its power without undue weight. This is flat out brilliant though it would be a colossal waste to open one before at least 15 years passes." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Jan 2011
Provenance: The Besançon Cellar
