About The Wine
Benjamin Leroux's Bourgogne Rouge comes from a selection of plots across Volnay, Pommard, and Meursault with a smattering of fruit from Hautes-Côtes de Nuits above Vosne-Romanée and village and 1er from Monthelie.
It's a wine of great finesse and balance with an extra level of detail and complexity than you would normally see of red Burgundy at this price point.
It's the length, precision and extension of flavour that sets this apart from other Bourgonge Rouge. This is no clumsy, fumbling Burgundy, but an athletic wine of tension with red fruits and rosy floral notes to burn.
Another great release from Leroux and arguably his best under this label to date.
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.
