Domaine Leroy Nuits-St.-Georges les Boudots 2006
Maison Leroy is a négociant house, relying on Lalou’s exceptional palate to purchase premium wines and distribute them under the Maison Leroy label. What distinguishes Lalou from her peers? Her relentless pursuit of fine wines that are direct expressions of their terroir. With courage, she makes wine from extremely low yields (producing crops one fourth the size of her neighbors) and bottles without fining or filtration. In addition, the estate vineyards are farmed according to the strict biodynamic guidelines, avoiding herbicides, pesticides, fungicides or any other non-organic material. The results are dramatic.
At Domaine LEROY, we have been cultivating our vines under biodynamic conditions since 1989. This means that our wines are free of all chemical treatments, weed killers, pesticides, fungicides, insecticides and artificial fertilizers. Instead, we have stepped back in time and use cosmic rhythms to ensure correct soil tilling and recuperation as well as effective vine care through all phases of the year's cycle.
