About The Wine
Benjamin Leroux's Bourgogne Blanc is primarily sourced from his vineyard holdings in Meursault.
This is a very high level of quality to be labelled under the banner of Bourgogne. The level of care and attention to detail undertaken by Leroux in crafting this cuveé is not dissimilar to the way he treats his 1er and Grand Cru offerings.
The wine is matured in large oval-shaped vats and left quietly to rest on lees and gather texture over the winter.
This is a Chardonnay with great depth and structure, and one of the best possible places to start if you're wandering into the wonderful land of white Burgundy.
About Benjamin Leroux
Burgundian native Benjamin Leroux is one of the brightest minds and winemaking talents of his generation.
Considered a winemaking prodigy from an early age, Leroux attended the Lycée Viticole in Baune at the tender age of 13. Then, at the age of just 26, he ascended to the roles of manager and winemaker in the famed cellars of Domaine Comte Armand - a remarkable vote of confidence in one so young.
In 2007 he launched his eponymous label to wide critical acclaim. His has been a meteoric rise through the ranks of Burgundy's producers. His incisive modern approach to winemaking combined with his deep knowledge and respect for tradition has seen his small, hand-crafted cuveés coveted by collectors across the world.
These wines speak eloquently of where they come from. A legend in the making, Leroux's wines are some of the most exciting in modern-day Burgundy.
