An Opus of the Earth: Domaine Leroy's Triumph over Adversity

The narrative of the 2016 vintage in Burgundy is marked by adversity - frost and mildew taking a significant toll on quantity. However, quality soared like a phoenix from proverbial ashes, offering rare depth. The 2016 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru’s concentration is a consequence of these smaller yields - the vines diverting their entire vitality into surviving clusters.

Domaine Leroy's biodynamic practices enable their wines to resonate with these climatic influences more acutely. This particular cuvée unfurls opulent layers of dark berries, sous bois, and exotic spices, whilst a firm minerality anchors its Burgundian identity. The palate retains impeccable balance: rich yet finessed tannins, singing acidity, and a lingering finish that continues to unfold like a timeless narrative.


A Vintage to Cherish: Investing in Liquid History

The 2016 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru from Domaine Leroy is one such bottle that commands attention within a diversifying portfolio. Its scarcity underpins not only its intrinsic value but also its potential for appreciation.

On occasion, each vintage imparts a distinct signature on its wine; it is here that one finds the artistry of Domaine Leroy transcending typical vinous boundaries. With time, this wine will only accrue in intricacy and worth - for both the sensitivities of the connoisseur and the astuteness of the investor.
