Vosne Romanee les Beaux Monts 2007 Domaine Leroy
Leroy’s 2007 Vosne-Romanee Les Beaux Monts epitomizes the mysteriously saline, crustacean, moss, and humus-like savor of which this site is capable, accompanied by violet and elder flower perfume, ripe cassis and raspberry fruit, and subtle, nobly fungal notes. Velvety in texture yet possessed of uncanny lift and a core of sheer refreshment, this preserves the effusive personality that many 2007s exhibited early on in cask, but few deliver today in bottle. But scarcely any youthful 2007s ever pretended to this level of complexity, detail, or depth of flavor. I would relish following it for at least 15 years.
