Scores and tasting notes
From a vineyard I adore for its forward, sultry style, the Vosne-Romanee Les Brulees (25 cases) reveals an enticing and exotic nose of spices and berries and a beautifully silky-textured palate crammed with lush red fruits and Asian spices. Attractive, opulent and sensual, this medium-to-full bodied wine should be at its peak between 2000-2010. This note is the result of tastings I did in Burgundy between January 7 and January 29. The wine was tasted from cask, not bottle. Pinot Noir, a fragile varietal, reacts poorly to fining, filtration, and careless bottling techniques, I recommend caution when considering buying a red burgundy based on cask samples. I called it as I tasted it, and hope the bottled wine reflects the quality of the samples I was provided. I have included the cases production for the wine in order for readers to appreciate the rarity of Leroy's wines. Importer: Martine's Wines, San Raphael, CA; tel. (415) 485-1800.
