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 Clos Saint Denis Grand Cru 2013 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (93)

Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru has an attractive bouquet with brambly red and black fruit, fresh with fine pixelation. The palate is medium-bodied with a vivid, peppery entry. The acidity is well judged and there is proper Morey backbone here, saline in the mouth with just a hint of brine/black olive towards the sophisticated finish. Even if there is a faint suggestion of TCA, this remains an excellent wine. Tasted September 2016.

Benjamin Leroux Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru 2016 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (91-93)

The 2016 Griotte Chambertin Grand Cru includes 25% whole-bunch fruit. It has more red fruit on the nose compared to the black fruit of the Mazoyères-Chambertin—very detailed and expressive with hints of blood orange coming through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, touches of dried blood, something almost ferrous toward the poised, saline finish. This has great personality and it should age with style.

Benjamin Leroux Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru 2018 (6x150cl)

Burghound (91-93)

Relatively strong reduction gets the best of the underlying fruit at present as about all that can be discerned is a hint of wood. Otherwise there is outstanding richness and mid-palate concentration to the sleeker and more mineral-driven medium weight flavors that possess a polished if muscular mouthfeel that contrasts considerably with the long and built-to-age if raspy finish where a hint of warmth slowly emerges.

Benjamin Leroux Meursault Vireuils Blanc 2018 (6x75cl)

Vinous (90-92)

The 2018 Meursault Les Vireuils offers more complexity on the nose compared to the Village Cru, offering pressed yellow flowers intermixed with beeswax and honeysuckle aromas. The palate is well balanced with better acidity than the Meursault Village and offers a welcome touch of salinity on the tensile finish. This comes recommended and should age well for a decade.

Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy (91-93)

One third whole bunch vinification to keep it lively. Perfumed notes on a very pretty clear purple colour. This starts discreetly but builds very well, with quite a savoury touch at the finish and plenty of tannins but they are properly ripe. Good length. Tasted: October 2021
