Description

100% Pinot Noir. Having created a name for himself as general manager of Comte Armand, Benjamin Leroux now produces some of the finest wines in Burgundy even though his domaine is less than 15 years old. Benjamin is a master at delivering purity of fruit alongside a seamless texture in his wines which have only the subtlest influence of oak. The legendary Burgundy expert, Allen Meadows, said of Ben that he is “extremely thoughtful . . . positively brilliant . . . one of, if not the, most gifted young winemaker in all of Burgundy.” The possibilities are very exciting for this exceptionally talented vigneron as he coaxes so much life and energy out of every single one of his parcels.

Tasting Notes
Another success is the 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Les Mitans, an aromatic, perfumed wine that bursts with notions of peonies, plums and orange rind. Medium-bodied, lively and charming, with melting tannins and a supple, demonstrative profile, it will drink well young.
