    Maison Benjamin Leroux

    About Maison Benjamin Leroux

    At only 24 years old, Benjamin Leroux took over winemaking at Domaine Comte Armand from his old mentor, Pascal Marchand. Big shoes to fill for any young winemaker. Yet his first wines in 1999 were hailed as stars of the vintage. After leaving Comte Armand, he focuses on his own winery in Beaune where he has a small négociant business.

     

    The natural heir of Henri Jayer, Benjamin Leroux is a modern producer in every sense of the word and his wines, whether it be the entry-level Bourgogne Blanc or the Grand Cru Echezeaux. These wines are pure class and offer some of the best, freshest styles in the region.

     

    Viniculture

    A daring young talent does not afraid to challenge tradition, Benjamin Leroux also makes use of the screw cap in some of his entry levels, meaning that the wines which are best drunk young will be fresh and lively rather than oxidised, which is of course always a risk with natural cork.

    He buys grapes (never juice or wine) from his own and others’ vineyards where he holds his growers to exacting standards - over 50% practice organic viticulture. Hold on tight and grab a rising star.

    Benjamin Leroux Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Baudines 2012 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (90)

    Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2012 tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru les Baudines from Benjamin Leroux has a more subdued bouquet compared to Sophie Morey's Les Embrazées 2012. It is pretty, quite detailed but tightly wound, traces of yellow flowers and a touch of almond developing with time. The palate is crisp and tensile. There is plenty of race here, good depth with that saline element flourishing towards the finish. This is a well-crafted Chassagne-Montrachet though without quite the same degree of nuance as the very best in its class.

    Benjamin Leroux Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Tete du Clos 2016 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (92-94)

    (one of the four barrels was new in 2016): Musky, noble reduction to the aromas of pear, minerals and flowers. At once thick and juicy, boasting lovely concentration and clarity to its soil-driven flavors of stone fruits and saline, rocky minerals. Tight in the middle at present but this fine-grained wine broadens out on the very long, glistening, palate-saturating back end. Leroux told me he made between 25 and 30 hectoliters per hectare from these very old vines, which he noted is the normal yield here.

    Benjamin Leroux Meursault 1er Cru Genevrieres 2019 (1x150cl)

    Vinous (89-92)

    The 2019 Meursault Genevrières-Dessus 1er Cru will only be bottled in magnum. This has more complexity on the nose compared to the Meursault Genevrières, displaying heightened mineralité, and revealing touches of white peach and nectarine with time. The palate is very well balanced with more noticeable oak, partly because this was aged in a single one-year-old barrel. Hopefully that oak will be integrated after racking.
