Allen Meadows - Burghound "Mme Bize reports that her yields in 2002 were even lower than the 17 hl/ha in 2001, averaging only 15.6 hl/ha (compared to 20 to 22 hl/ha in 2000). As was the case for the 2000 and 2001 vintages, Domaines Leroy and d'Auvenay elected to bottle quite early; in fact, the 2002s were bottled in July! Mme Bize calls 2002 a 'belle année of exceptional concentration and almost perfectly healthy fruit with excellent physiological ripeness and sugars of around 13%. The wines are exceptionally well balanced and while I would not say the 2002 as a group is better than 1999, a few wines in the portfolio are better". While 2002 is not in my view a truly gifted terroir vintage, Mme Bize commented that "we had perhaps the most obvious distinction ever in terms of terroir differentiation'.The Leroy 2002s are extremely impressive wines, as well they should be for the prices demanded."
