Product Description

"Comments: Don't miss! This is quite ripe though not surmature, featuring a fresh array of distinctly earthy and ever so slightly rustic red and blue fruit aromas that are in perfect keeping with the robust, muscled and powerful full-bodied flavors underpinned by mouth coating tannins and superb concentration on the strikingly long finish. As impressive as this is, and it's very impressive, after the fireworks provided by the RSV and the Riche, it doesn't quite have the game to fully match up. Still, I hope to have the pleasure of trying a glass or two when it finally reaches full maturity.

Good full, bright red. Soil-inflected nose hints at black cherry, redcurrant, menthol and earth. At once powerful and austere, with strong acid spine and peppery thrust to the black fruit and floral flavors. The ripe tannins coat the molars, but this very long and precise wine offers superb finesse.
94 Points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
 
Broad-shouldered and meaty as well as palpably extract-rich, and in at least those respects reminiscent of this year's Richebourg, the Leroy 2006 Clos Vougeot suggests herbed lamb roasted in a stone pit, with a concentrated saucing of cassis and blackberries. Smoky, saline, and pungently herbal notes mingle with the carnal and berry-rich elements in a long finish of mouth-watering savor and invigoratingly pungent smokiness. This sturdy, dense, yet immediately appealing Clos Vougeot should be fascinating to follow, and offers further evidence of the remarkably varied vinous personalities within the 2006 Leroy collection.
Wine Advocat, David Schildknecht, December 2009.
