About The Wine
Benjamin Leroux's village level wines, particularly in the reds, are outstanding in 2019, and the Savigny-les-Beaune represents possibly the best value among them.
It shows a power and sophistication not far off many 1er reds in the region, this release showing a particularly linear palate with a floral, musky nose, pure red fruit crunch and some light herbal notes (20% whole bunch).
This offers gorgeous drinking now and will cellar beautifully for the next decade or more.
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.
