The Leroy – Leroy d’Auvernay Bourgogne 1971 is a quite extraordinary wine. The bouquet is very delicate with a fantastic complexity for this level – notes of orange, coffee, sous-bois, truffle and truffle peel. On the palate mature red pinot fruit – very fresh and juicy given the age. It’s quite rich on the midpalate … but somewhat short … not really surprising given the level. Very impressed by the freshness in the fruit and the quite vibrant acidity … a lovely glas of mature Burgundy and a extraordinary effort. Impossible to rate a wine like this … it’s not a great Burgundy but a generic wine – somewhat short and lacking true terroir – but it’s also a great experience and a pleasure to drink and enjoy.
