Nearly half a century ago, in 1868, François Leroy bought the land in Burgundy, near Meursault. His son Joseph, who invested a lot of effort in the development of family winemaking, wine brought Domain Leroy among the best wines of Burgundy. His efforts were rewarded with several major awards and medals of prestigious competitions. In 1919 the family business includes Henri Leroy, which greatly expands production with the commercialization of de-vie distillery at Segonzac in the heart of Grande Champagne. In 1942, he bought half of the prestigious "Domaine de la Romanee-Conti" and entirely devoted 40 years of his life to its development, turning into a real gem of a domain of Burgundy. Since 1955, the father joins daughter Lala, who passionately involved in the work, studying the basic characteristics of each acquired their "terroir" and the principle of "the best to be found." Lalu thoroughly expanded ownership Domain Leroy. Today, Leroy own sites in 9 Grand Cru, Premier Cru 8, 8 appellations. Since 1989 Domain Leroy moved to biodynamic methods of growing grapes. These methods prohibit the use of chemical treatment, the use of herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, insecticides and synthetic fertilizers, while drawing on the knowledge of natural and cosmic rhythms required for tillage, regeneration and care for the vines.
