The history of Maison Leroy began in 1968 when François Leroy, winemaker and owner of vineyards in Pommard, Meursault, Chambertin, Musigny, Clos de Vougeot and Richebourg, decided to create a structure with the aim of expanding.
During the Second part of the 20th century, his son's efforts were rewarded with various medals and Grands Prix in France and Belgium alike. However, it was not until the arrival of Henri Leroy in 1919, the third generation, that things really changed. Highly invested in the business, he led it to a meteoric rise.
A few years later, in 1942, Maison Leroy became the owner of half the shares in Romanée-Conti's Domaine. Henry would devote the rest of his life to the estate, giving his all to create the jewel we know today.
Lalou Bize-Leroy, Henri's daughter and a grande dame of the Burgundy wine world, joined the adventure in 1955. She quickly took over from her father, becoming President and General Manager of Maison Leroy as well as co-manager of Romanée-Conti Domaine. An unrivalled taster and connoisseur of the terroirs of Bourgogne, she will always strive for the best. This quest for perfection led her in 1988 to buy several Domaines and cultivate them biodynamically, making her a pioneer in the field.
Topping out at 21 hectares 99 ares 66 centiares, Domaine Leroy today boasts 9 Grands Crus, 8 Premiers Crus, 9 Villages and a few generic Bourgognes. With its racy terroirs, it offers us each vintage confidential cuvées of incredible richness.

Description Domaine Leroy Nuits Saint-Georges Premier Cru "Aux Boudots" 2009.
Find below Antonio Galloni's commentary in English from WineAdvocate on September 30, 2011:
"The 2009 Nuits St. Georges Aux Boudots is a big, explosive wine endowed with considerable textural depth and power.
Endless waves of flavor wrap around the palate in this extroverted Burgundy.
Despite the wine’s size, it also has more than enough polish and class to balance some of its more overt tendencies.
Black cherries, smoke, spices and asphalt are some of the nuances that add complexity to the long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039.
This was my first opportunity to taste the 2009s from Domaine Leroy in bottle.
Lalou Bize-Leroy was among the first, if not the first, to bottle her 2009s, so she naturally wanted to give the wines some time to recover before showing them.
The wines are stunning. Readers who have an opportunity to taste them should not hesitate.
As always, the style is one of textural richness and depth, but the2009s appear to have excellent underlying material as well.
The attention to every detail at the Domaine is quite evident in these thrilling wines.
My visit ended with a sample of the 2010 Chambertin from barrel.
Why not go straight to the top? If that wine is representative of the year, Leroy fans will have another superb vintage to look forward to, although yields will be lower than the already minuscule production".
