Please note, this wine is arriving in early November.
Please note, orders are processed on a first come basis. If you leave the wine in your cart for even a few minutes it might have already sold out as our stock quantity is removed when you submit the order in final, not when you add it to your cart!
You will get two emails from us with regards to your order. The first email from us only confirms that we received your order. The second email will confirm that we have enough wine to fill your order. Due to the high volume of sales there are times when the wine has sold out, but our system is still updating and shows it as available. We're sorry for any inconvenience and will do what we can to fill your order!

87-88 Pts Antonio Galloni - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2010 Bourgogne Rouge (from tank) is a fleshy, supple wine laced with floral red fruits, best suited for drinking over the next few years. Leroux's Bourgogne is made from declassified fruit from the Santenay 1er Cru La Comme and a 1er Cru fruit from St. Aubin. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016."
"I continue to be impressed with the wines Benjamin Leroux is making under his own label. Leroux sources fruit from a number of top vineyards in the region. The wines are made in a facility Leroux shares with Nicolas Rossignol in the center of town." (02/12)
"Benjamin Leroux, the gifted manager/winemaker of Domaine Comte Armand has started his own label and has a brand new winery in the center of Beaune (just off the Boulevard) that he shares with Dominique Lafon. The operation is very small and will eventually specialize, primarily, in Puligny and Volnay but with many other appellations also covered. Leroux works with vineyards he manages, owns and will also buy fruit (never juice or wine) from growers with who he can work closely; growers that produce the quality of fruit to match Leroux's exacting standards. Half of the the vineyards are currently organic (this percentage is growing) and 100% of the sites are ploughed with no herbicides or pesticides used at all. In most cases the tiny volumes are between one and five barrels of each wine and a total of 120 barrels were produced in his first vintage, 2007. By the way, some of the cuvees Leroux has been producing for a number of years at Comte Armand. These wines have now come across to the Benjamin Leroux label."
"Leroux is considered one of the most gifted and knowledgeable wine growers in the whole Cote d'Or. It only suffices to ask any other serious producer about Leroux to realize the respect he has garnered amongst his colleagues in the region. He was always considered a prodigy, studying at the Lycee Viticole in Beaune from the age of 13 and taking the reins at the esteemed Domaine Comte Armand when he was only 26. Leroux's success with the Domaine's wines over the last decade has well justified the decision to appoint such a young man to run the show. He will continue to manage Comte Armand despite now having his own range of wines (another sign of how well respected he is). The range will be fine tuned...and new vineyard acquisitions will add to the offering, however Leroux is determined only to work with vineyards that have been well managed and produce outstanding fruit, regardless of whether or not they have famous names. This makes sense, Leroux's knowledge of Burgundy is encyclopedic and producers like him are waking up the wine world to the fact that the reputation of many Cote d'Or vineyards has as much to do with the producers who work them than any intrinsic qualities of the sites themselves." -Importer
