Robert Parker – 90
A site-typically smoky, “ferrous” pungency along with ripe dark cherry fruit rises from the glass of Leroy 2006 Pommard Les Vignots, which then comes to the palate subtly meat broth-like; persistently mineral; and brimming with juicy and ingratiating ripe fruit. This is one of those select Pommards of the vintage that has real spring in its step and elegant tannic attire.
Vinous – 88
Medium red. Sweet red cherry nose shows a liqueur-like quality. Supple, tangy red cherry and raspberry flavors are nicely framed by harmonious acidity. Not especially dense or complex but juicy, spicy and pliant. Finishes with an enticing spice character. This will go truffley and earthy with bottle aging.
