En Primeur | Benjamin Leroux 2019

After fifteen years as régisseur of Domaine Comte Armand, Benjamin Leroux left his post after the 2013 harvest to pursue his own project full-time. His business is part négociant, part domaine, all marketed under one brand. He tends to buy grapes rather than juice or wine and exercises a guiding hand in the vineyards he buys from so that the fruit meets his exacting standards. He finds himself amongst a clutch of stellar winemakers changing the face of négociant wines in Burgundy. He has a deep understanding of the region, its traditions and its challenges.

My Zoom tasting with Ben was so insightful. This supremely talented vigneron never stands still. Constantly learning and innovating, he is a leader in his field. He does not follow the common policy of cold soaking his grapes before fermentation. He likes his grapes to start a natural fermentation and likens the process to the gentle infusion of a good tea. In his opinion, it was not the heat that most influenced the 2019s, rather the dryness. His throwaway line at the end of our discussion was that 2019s remind him of 2010. High praise indeed!
