Benjamin Leroux Gevrey-Chambertin
Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Noir
Having created a name for himself as régisseur (general manager) of Domaine du Comte Armand in Pommard, Benjamin Leroux established, with English backing, a small négociant business based in Beaune since 2007. The range is confined to the Côte d’Or, from Chassagne-Montrachet to Gevrey-Chambertin.
The possibilities are very exciting for this exceptionally talented vigneron. Benjamin is a master at delivering purity of fruit alongside a seamless texture in his wines which have only the subtlest influence of oak.
Tasting Note: Lovely fresh purple, very sympathetic perfumed nose. Light to medium bodied, rich, sweet primary fruit with slightly dry finish. The assemblage retains the lightness of touch married with quality of fruit - fresh and persistent.
