Benjamin Leroux has established himself as one of the most talented and versatile winemakers in Burgundy. Having made a name for himself as regisseur of Domaine du Comte Armand, so much so he was courted to take over the reins at Domaine Leflaive, he decided in to set up his own Domaine and micro-négoce in 2007. Although originally from Burgundy, he does not come from a vigneron family and gained experience with the likes of Cos d'Estournel in Bordeaux, Domaine Drouhin in Oregon and Louis Jadot in Beaune.
Ben has enviable holdings and contracts throughout Burgundy, from village level to Grand Cru, for both reds and whites, with over 50 different wines being made in most vintages. He is an ardent follower of organic and biodynamic viticultural practices and is on a constant search for aromatic intensity and purity in his wines. This is an impressive set up and the wines are well worth exploring.
