I have had this beauty multiple times over the years and it continues to evolve slowly but gracefully. The expressive nose remains notably youthful as there are still no obvious secondary nuances present on the ripe, fresh, earthy, spicy and highly complex aromas. There is equally good ripeness to the big-bodied and still firmly tannic flavors that possess superb depth and outstanding length on the balanced finale where the only nit worth mentioning is a hint of warmth. This remains a notably serious wine despite the relatively round and velvety mid-palate texture that rapidly transforms into a very firm finish. In sum this is a really fine effort that should age, and drink, gracefully for years to come. Consistent notes save for one bottle that was cloudy and did not show as well as what I describe above. 2024+

This medium to full-bodied wine is densely packed with cherries spices licorice and candied blueberries. It is velvety-textured intense and possesses an amazingly long supple finish. This harmonious and extremely well-balanced wine should be at its peak of maturity between 2005 and 2018.

The nose is marked by caramel plum and macerated fruits with more bass than the 1996. On the palate the fruit has a slightly candied quality but its very concentrated. A bit compact on the finish yet with a long sweet... The nose is marked by caramel plum and macerated fruits with more bass than the 1996. On the palate the fruit has a slightly candied quality but its very concentrated. A bit compact on the finish yet with a long sweet fruit aftertaste. Domaine Leroy non-blind tasting (6/08). Best from 2016 through 2050. -BS
