François LEROY, winemaker, owner of vines at Auxey-Duresses . In addition, he owned vines at Meursault, Pommard, Chambertin, Musigny, Clos Vougeot, and Richebourg. As he wished to enlarge his business, he founded Maison Leroy in 1868.
Lalou BIZE-LEROY, made the decision to expand Maison Leroy’s own vineyards. In 1988 she founded Domaine Leroy by purchasing, for Leroy, the estates of Charles Noellat at Vosne-Romanée and of Philippe-Rémy at Gevrey-Chambertin. In total Domaine Leroy now has 21 hectares, 99 ares, 66 centiares.
From her profound belief that everything is alive: the soil, the grounds, plants, “…as alive as animals and humans…”, . From September 1988, all the vines are completely and entirely cultivated under biodynamic principles.
This fantastic Aligote exhibits laser-beam citrus scented acidity, the lively palate feel of dry Riesling and a density usually found in Grand Cru Cote de Beaune whites. This chewy, mouth coating wine will please the most demanding lover of truly dry white Burgundy”. It is a weighty Aligote, with layers of bruised apples and white apple blossom.
