About The Wine
The white Burgundies of Benjamin Leroux are remarkable for their elegance and finesse.
This refinement and coiled power is more evident than ever in 2018, a vintage where everything came together perfectly. Leroux believes this to be an excellent vintage for both red and white wines in Burgundy. These are wines that will cellar impeccably.
The Meursault is in a very good place this year. Invariably one of the most beloved of the Leroux white villages, it is totally estate grown fruit this year, with select parcels from Moulin Landin, Criots, Bois de Blagny and Les Millerands combining to create a mellifluous Chardonnay of great purity and energy.
It has the weight you want in a Meursault, the pulpy, open fruit, but the acidity and drive is the thing that will take your breath away.
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.
