Leroy (Maison), Beaune Sizies 1er Cru 1990

Domaine Leroy Beaune Sizies 1er Cru 1991 #1

Fullish ruby red color with some bricking at the edge.  Full, rich nose: red raspberry fruit tart, baked mirabelle, rose petal, tea leaf, farmyardy undergrowth.  Fat, succulent and concentrated on the palate, with good acidity and grip.  Tannins are resolved now.  A Sizies 1er Cru with terrific energy and intensity to the raspberry fruit.  Downright voluptuous, in fact.  Both very ’90 and very Leroy.  Now à point and while we are inclined to say ‘drink soon’ we have always been amazed by how well Leroy wines last, including her Bourgognes.  A fine bottle.  Now – 2016.
