Benjamin Leroux Volnay 2016 - Burgundy, France


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.

M+Q Notes

20% of the wine was whole bunch fermented and 1/5 of the wine spent time in new oak barrels. The resulting wine was beautifully crafted with a notable elegance and intensity. Spiced cherry and crushed raspberries on the nose with earthiness, plum, rhubarb and a touch of brine on the palate. The acidity is completely in balance with the firm structure and pretty texture.
