Lalou Bize-Leroy is described by Jancis Robinson as “Burgundy’s most celebrated vigneronne”. She started in the 1950s working for her father’s négociant business, Maison Leroy. Her time was devoted to studying the vineyards of Burgundy and her mission was to understand the unique terroir of each individual site, how the wines are made and what they should taste like. This gave her a staggering almost unrivalled knowledge. By 1971, the studying had paid off; she was the President/Directrice of Maison Leroy. Her duties included accompanying her father to weekly meetings at Domaine Romanée Conti, a little investment he had made in the 1940s giving him fifty percent ownership of the winery. By 1974, she became the co-manager of DRC, where she worked untiringly to raise the status of the domain.
