Although still a young man, Benjamin Leroux has more experience than any winemaker his age. With an average production of less than 200 cases per wine, the challenge is securing enough for the demand of this star who's now in the cross-hairs of collectors.
Bourgogne Rouge is sourced from several parcels covering appellations Hautes-Côtes de Nuits, Santenay, Beaune, Ladoix, Savigny-lès-Beaune, and Fixin. Grapes are fully de-stemmed, fermented with native yeasts over 10 days, aged in older French barrique for 12 months, and bottled without fining or filtering.
Leroux began studying at Beaune's wine school at age 13. After working in Bordeaux, Oregon, and New Zealand, he became a winemaker at the revered Comte Armand estate in Pommard. After 30 years in the industry, he has now begun to focus nearly exclusively on his own label, still consulting for a bit for Comte Armand.
