Bourgogne Rouge, Benjamin Leroux 2013
|Grape Variety:||Pinot Noir|
|Wine Style:||Dry Red, Medium-Bodied|
With fruit sourced from village vineyards in Beaune and Santenay as well as Bourgogne vineyards, this is a cut above your average Bourgogne Rouge. Aged in large old wood to preserve the fresh, fruity style, this is a crisp and crunchy Pinot, delicious for everyday drinking.
Having created a name for himself as régisseur (general manager) of Domaine du Comte Armand in Pommard 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, with the intention of developing farming contracts or indeed purchasing vineyards in the future.
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.
