Domaine Leroy Vosne-Romanee 2004 Auction

We are very pleased to be offering for sale in our June 2023 Auction, Domaine Leroy Vosne-Romanee, Cotes de Nuits 2004. The 2004 is the most exclusive, rarest and sought after vintage of Domaine Leroy an icon of Burgundian wines, and Lalou Bize-Leroy being one of the most influential winemakers in the business. After inheriting her father’s negociant business in 1955, she went on to co-manage DRC and brought Romanee Conti into the world stage as one of the most sought after wine in the world. After departing DRC in 1992, she started Domaine Leroy and has ever since created top-rated wines and receiving numerous accolades from wine critics around the world.

The 2004 was a unique yet controversial vintage for Leroy. That year, Madame Leroy declassified all her upper level wines to village level. There are many theories from critics as to why she did what she did; but little did people know that 2004 was also a depressing year for her as her husband, Marcel Bize passed away.
