It is a privilege to present this marvelous selection of Leroy wines produced by the legendary Madame Lalou Bize-Leroy. This fantastic offering has been meticulously amassed through reputable French wine merchants by an established European family of art and wine connoisseurs and cellared on the Continent in professional storage. Arguably the greatest red Burgundy wines on the Cote d`Or at present, most of the fabulous Domaine Leroy Grands Crus from the Côte de Nuits are here together with some formidable Maison Leroy wines. Opportunities like this do not arise very often. “Lalou Bize-Leroy is a force to be reckoned with in Burgundy. Brought up in wine, she developed firm principles and equally firm convictions. For her, reducing yields is a religion and Biodynamic viticultural methods the route to quality and longevity. No destemming and long vattings add to the almost essence-like intensity of the wines. Their deep, emphatic style is a reflection of the commitment and personality of Lalou Bize-Leroy. These wines hardly seem to age - they stay suspended in time”. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
