Benjamin Leroux Savigny les Beaune Les Vergelesses 1er Cru 2019
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.
