Benjamin Leroux Bourgogne Rouge, 2015

36.00

Hand selected by Pascal Marchand to become the next regisseur at Comte Armand in 1999, Benjamin left the Comte Armand Estate in 2014 to concentrate on his own negociant operation in Beaune. He works only from grapes - no juice or musts - and uses organic and biodynamic village-level lots whenever possible, including Santenay, Beaune, Ladoix, Savigny-les-Beaune, and Fixin. All grapes from all terroirs are vinified together using indigenous yeast after being destemmed and undergoing a 10 day maceration process. The wine ages in older oak barrels for 1 year, unfined and unfiltered. This wine is always vinified with the goal of conserving a fresh fruit character, a blend of red and black berries. This wine shows both, with ripe black raspberry and blackberry qualities, with hints of dark chocolate and a gentle spice from the oak barrels.
