Of this cohort, the 2003 Nuits St Georges aux Allots from Domaine Leroy is a testament to the winery's mettle.


Harvest of Trial and Triumph

Faced with extreme climatic conditions, Domaine Leroy harvested with a tactical precision that ensured the fruit from their Aux Allots vineyard—planted on the northern side of Nuits-St-Georges—ripened to create an unexpected classic. The simultaneous concentration and preservation of the acidity in these grapes are attributes that only a producer of Domaine Leroy's calibre could orchestrate in such a vintage.


Delving into the Distinctive

This particular bottling allows the aficionado to indulge in a rare dichotomy: opulent ripeness met with an energetic vivacity unique to the 2003 Nuits St Georges aux Allots. The wine is imbued with a generous palate of lush dark berries, reflecting the intensity of the Bleu de Nuits marl soil, while subtler hints of black truffle and forest floor emerge over time. Despite its richness, one finds it animated by an undercurrent of minerality that ensures its place as more than just a vestige of heat.

The tannins, initially formidable in youth, have softened over years in bottle to yield a structure that is now rounded yet thoroughly commanding. The delineation this wine offers is impressive—it engages without overwhelming and endures long on the finish.

In sum, partaking in or investing in this 2003 offering bears both richness to the palate and resilience to a collection—an embodiment capturing the alluring complexity that Burgundy enthusiasts continually seek. A vintage narrative so distinctively sung through each bottle, positioning it as one of the most engaging narratives from not just Burgundy, but across viticultural chronicles.
