Few names in the world of wine carry the weight of Leroy. Lalou Bize-Leroy presides over perhaps the most extensive portfolio of top-notch sites in the Côtes de Nuits, and her Maison Leroy draws from the best expressions of terroir from Burgundy, negotiating directly with producers and vinifying the wines that carry the Leroy label. Bourgogne Gamay AOC is a relatively new designation, with fruit from Beaujolais Cru villages. This release constitutes the first Leroy Gamay available in the US. The wine has notes of ripe black and blue fruit, violets, and mineral notes. It is delicious and approachable now with an aging potential of 5-8 years. Biodynamically grown, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
