About Domaine Leroy

One of the great Domaines in Burgundy, if not the greatest. Centred above immaculate cellars in Vosne-Romanée, the vineyards are run on strict bio-dynamic lines with yields regularly being 18 to 20 hl/ha – about one third of the average Burgundian production. Lalou Bize Leroy and her team are some of the most proactive and astute in the Côte d’Or – never taking anything for granted. The Leroy ‘Collection’ is the result of some thousands of samples of grape must and wine tasted by Lalou and her team. Cellared and bottled in Auxey-Duresses until ready to drink, they offer some of Burgundy’s finest mature drinking.

Appellation: Corton-Renards

Corton Renardes is one of the many Grand Cru vineyards that are more often labelled simply as Corton Grand Cru. Some have suggested that the name ‘Les Renardes’, meaning ‘The Vixens’ stems from rich, gamey aromas often found in the wine however this is unproven. The vineyard is just over 14HA which means that after Bressandes it is the second largest of the Corton Grand Crus, situated on the eastern side of the hill on pebbly, clay-limestone.
