Compare & Contrast - DRC & Leroy

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and Domaine Leroy. Each producer is an icon and has their own clearly distinguishable style. Why do they have so much in common, and yet are often so distinctive from each other? This article, based on a blind tasting of wines from the same vineyards and vintages, seeks to explain why. Time to compare and contrast.

Welocme to le chalut copy

Le Chalut, Saint-Malo, France

Le Chalut, a historic restaurant of Saint-Malo, may no longer be the highly awarded, media-darling dining destination it once was, but it still offers fresh, beautifully cooked seafood in a quiet, refined environment.

2017 Finca Piedra Negra Malbec Reserva, 91 points

From Los Chacayes, Uco Valley’s newest official appellation, this stylish Malbec offers pure, complex aromas and flavors of blackberry, violet, spices and brushy herbs accented by a minty nuance. Displaying refined tannins, the vibrant finish spreads out to saturate and perfume the mouth. (ST)

2012 Vietti Barolo Riserva Villero

Vietti’s 2012 Barolo Riserva Villero is absolutely gorgeous. In 2012, the Villero is especially lifted and aromatic, showing a distinctly floral and red-toned expression of fruit rather than the darker, more balsamic inflections that are typical of this Castiglione Falletto cru.
