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.

From 2015 Leroux's Bourgogne Blanc is one of six wines crafted exclusively from estate owned fruit. The majority of this cuvée is drawn from 60 year old vines rooted in a single site in Meursault called Les Millerands .

M+Q Notes

The wine was raised in 12 hectolitre cask for 12 months before spending a few months resting in tank. Wonderful texture with vibrant, juicy acidity giving definition and tension to the wine's pulpy fruit. A wine for any serious lovers of Bourgogne Blanc.

Food Pairing

Mussels, white wine, garlic, tomato
