In the pantheon of Burgundian royalty, Domaine Leroy’s offerings are perennially lauded, and the 2015 Latricières-Chambertin is a particularly fascinating exhibit. This wine is a testament to the estate's finesse in handling an extraordinary vintage. My sojourn through the storied terroirs of Burgundy has provided many a memorable encounter, yet few have distilled the essence of a harvest as triumphantly as this cuvée.

 

A Vintage Like No Other

The 2015 vintage across Burgundy was a vigneron's dream, gifting winemakers with conditions that flirted with perfection. As such, the 2015 Latricières-Chambertin is infused with a character unreplicable in other harvests. This sublime expression crafted by the vigilant stewardship at Domaine Leroy emerged splendidly from what can only be described as an idyllic climatic canvas.

Rousing the senses with an opulent bouquet of wild cherries, earthy undertones, and a whisper of spice, this sumptuous pinot noir transcends expectations. There is a profound depth here, a layered complexity that asserts itself discreetly alongside an ethereal elegance – hallmarks of Domaine Leroy's illustrious touch.

The palate will discover not just a wine but a journey through an exquisite landscape of taste: from the bright vivacity of red fruit to the subtle vibrations of tannin that dance on the finish. It’s a well-crafted soiree between robust intensity and graceful longevity.

 

Investment Worthy Craftsmanship

For collectors and investors alike, locating wines which marry sensational taste profiles with potential for appreciation can be as complex as the wines themselves.

With its exclusivity and lauded vintage provenance, this wine presents a notable opportunity for those seeking assets that promise allure beyond the ephemeral trends.

Acknowledging this vintage without hyperbole or understatement remains a test of restraint because it simply excels in all parameters by which fine wine is judged. This 2015 offering is emblematic of Burgundian mastery; it is both an investment in pleasure and in potential gain, underpinning the reputation of Latricières-Chambertin and Domaine Leroy in the canon of superb vintages and venerable producers.

The 2015 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru from Domaine Leroy is spectacular, wafting from the glass with notes of rose petal, black cherry, cassis, rich spices and dark chocolate. On the palate, the wine is silky, elegant and multidimensional—a world away from the assertive structure of its near-neighbor Clos de la Roche—with silky tannins, superb concentration and a vibrant, saline finish. For all its intensity of flavor, this Latricières is a delicate, transparent wine that fully realizes this grand cru's potential.
