Benjamin Leroux Puligny-Montrachet 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

A combination of Chardonnay from the Corvée des Vignes and Les Reuchaux vineyards which is a bit different blend than usual due to the other vineyards having extreme frost damage. Made in barrels which 25% of them were new. Ripe fruit on the nose including sweet peach, pineapple and baked pear. Exotic fruits on the palate with a slight earthiness and rich viscosity. Persistent acidity in harmony with the fuller body of the wine.
