|The name Leroy is synonymous with Burgundy. Named after it’s owner Lalou Bize-Leroy, she is unrelenting in her pursuit of the purest expression of Burgundy possible.
The story of the Leroy family’s dominance in the wine world began more than a century ago, in 1868, when François Leroy founded Maison Leroy in Auxey-Duresses, a small village near Meursault. When Lalou’s father, Henri, joined the family business in 1919, the firm was already established as one of the greatest in Burgundy. Lalou joined her father in 1955, taking over the house in 1971.
Maison Leroy is the cornerstone of the Leroy empire and a negociant operation through which Lalou offers wines from many of the appellations of Burgundy. Maison Leroy has no historic contracts for grape buying and select the best grapes each vintage purely on quality.
Lalou tastes all of the negociant wines every year before release and selects the full range of Maison wines for the year prior to each release, with the wines having been matured at the domaine till they are in their drinking window.
All the wines in this offer were purchased directly from Maison Leroy upon release and are all packed in original cardboard cases.
This is the first of five offers from a large private collection of Maison Leroy.
All wines are now stored in LCB and are available for immediate delivery
