A very ripe and expressive nose that is classic Vosne features highly spiced aromas of violets, rose petal and black cherry nuanced with hints of earth leads to impressively concentrated and comparatively powerful flavors that possess a velvety texture as well as much better than average volume and ample finishing punch, all wrapped in a finale where the firm tannins are almost invisible due to all of the buffering sap. Outstanding.
The Leroy 2007 Vosne-Romanee Aux Genaivrieres is scented with red raspberry, rose hip, citrus oils, and discreet perfume of narcissus and faded lily. Refined and subtly creamy in texture, yet bright, and subtly decadent in its floral and forest floor intimations; this brings to bear a mouth-watering saline savor in a buoyant, billowing finish. Look for at least 12-15 years of pleasure from these fruits of Domaine Leroy’s “home” vineyard.
