The Story

Benjamin Leroux, the gifted manager/winemaker of Domaine Comte Armand launched his own label with the 2007 vintage.

Leroux works with vineyards he manages, vineyards he owns and also buys fruit (never juice or wine) from growers with who he can work closely; growers that produce the quality of fruit to match Leroux’s exacting standards. Half of the vineyards that Leroux works with are currently organic or biodynamic (this percentage is growing) and 100% of the sites are ploughed with no herbicides or pesticides used at all in any of the sites.

Leroux's aim is to craft a wine that reflects both the commune and the vintage overall. He sources fruit from a range of exposures and soil types, although most 2015 relies on Aux Fournaux in the north of the village. Les Peuillets and Hauts Jarrons 1er Cru in the south and Ez Connardises in the heart of the village make up the quartet of parcels. The final blend saw roughly 30% new oak and 40% whole bunch vinification. 

M+Q Notes

Full and texture and with a floral bouquet and red forest fruit aromas and fine mineralité. Fine tannins, elegant and poised on the finish.
