The 2009 Latricieres-Chambertin explodes from the wine with layers of black fruit that totally saturate the palate. It is a rich, dazzling Burgundy endowed with tons of class and sheer personality. The fruit shows multiple dimensions of expression in a rich, textured style that is immensely appealing. All of the elements build effortlessly to the big finish. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2034. This was my first opportunity to taste the 2009s from Domaine Leroy in bottle. Lalou Bize-Leroy was among the first, if not the first, to bottle her 2009s, so she naturally wanted to give the wines some time to recover before showing them. The wines are stunning. Readers who have an opportunity to taste them should not hesitate. As always, the style is one of textural richness and depth, but the2009s appear to have excellent underlying material as well. The attention to every detail at the Domaine is quite evident in these thrilling wines. My visit ended with a sample of the 2010 Chambertin from barrel. Why not go straight to the top? If that wine is representative of the year, Leroy fans will have another superb vintage to look forward to, although yields will be lower than the already minuscule production.
