Benjamin Leroux Vosne-Romanée 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

2/3 of the Pinot Noir was sourced from two sites that are organically farmed vines averaging 60 years of age and went through 100% whole bunch fermentation. The remaining site that makes up 1/3 of the blend was de-stemmed before fermentation. The wine has a depth and elegance with aromas of dark cherry, violets, crushed rocks and plum. Dark red fruits are punchy on the palate with vibrant acidity and sweet spice.
