Lightly cooked black cherry and raspberry, wood smoke, musk, and (for the first time in this collection) decidedly gamey aromas mark the Leroy 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Combottes. A distinctively wet stone cast inflects the black fruits on the very full, rounded palate, and this wine’s long, strong finish is dominated by yet more sweet black fruit, plus red licorice, with only a low-toned growl of wild animal. And indeed, at least today, the personality of this wine is itself dominated by its concentrated, seamless finish. Importer: Martine’s Wines. Novato, CA; tel. (415) 883-0400
