2013 domaine leroy, clos de la roche grand cru

Why We're Buying

Even summertime in Phoenix isn't as hot as Domaine Leroy right now. The estate has the Midas touch, turning grapes into investment gold. Domaine Leroy Clos de la Roche Grand Cru recently eclipsed the $5,000 price mark, more than doubling from 2017 to 2021. With the estate's extremely low-yielding vines and unprecedented demand, that price should continue to rise.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2013 Clos de la Roche has an airy and transparent nose that prioritizes the mineral-nature of the vineyard over the fruit at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, lithe in the mouth rather than fleshy, with very good weight, linear, but very harmonious and tender. This is a more understated Clos de la Roche in 2013, nevertheless a beautiful wine that I suspect might drink earlier than the other Grand Crus and yet will last just as long. Drink date: 2018-2038.
