Benjamin Leroux Meursault 2016 - Burgundy, France

Benjamin Leroux Meursault 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

The 2016 vintage saw quite a bit of frost but the domaine managed to create classic and impressive wines from the undamaged fruit. A combination of fruit from 4 different sites. 15% of the wine spends time in new oak barrels. It’s an energetic Chardonnay that boasts an elegant bouquet and ripeness of fruit flavours. Fresh orange, yellow pear and lemon zest on the palate combined with minerality and a soft vanilla character.
