Maison Leroy Meursault les Perrières Premiere Cru 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Spicy and smoky this smells like there is someone smoking a cigar in my glass, no really. Effusive tobacco smoke coupled with slight roasted red fruits and notes of cheese, capers, and green olive brine round out the rich aromatics. On the palate there is a bit of a thinning the is obvious but not unpleasant as it reveals a riverstone minerality to the wine that helps sweeten up the faded red fruits. It turns a bit grippy on the finish as there is not much there to buffer the remaining structure but the bottle sweetness makes for a nice round fruit tone on the finale. Drink em if you got em. 89pts

    very pale gold color, classic mersault nose of wet stones, hazlenuts and green apples. The palate is perfectly balanced, with great minerality and very long, finish. This was excellent with a range of seafood dishes, from crudo to roasted bay scallops- almost riesling-like in its ability to mirror and lift the flavors of the food. terrific.
