Bourgogne Blanc 2007, Domaine Leroy
Tasted on June 23, 2007 at the restaurant Le Gourmandin in Beaune. Thick gold colour that offers real riches. First nose is open and hits sherry, sponge cake, and apricot syrup aromas. Its very wafty with tangerine and trompette mushrooms. Hint of dough sourness at the end. Good balance, mature but not over the hill, structure has evolved outwards so the emphasis is on mid-palate impact not length. Can’t possibly have been made from grapes classified as Bourgogne. Declassified Meursault? This Leroy wine has plateaued and will lack fruit from next year - drink up.
