This is a superbly balanced wine. Mixed of red fruits and blackberries. Medium bodied with good intensity of flavours. Simply delicious and will be a crowd pleaser. Tasted with Gabriel Glas (handmade) in March 2020 during the lockdown. Drink now till 2025. Highly recommended!

Food Pairing: We had this with Roast Duck leg noodles. Awesome...Pinot Noir being low in tannins are easy on its own as well as roast duck or chicken or fine meat such as rack of lamb.
Variety: Pinot Noir
Benjamin Leroux was touted by Jancis Robinson MW as the heir to the 'next Henri Jayer'. Jayer was a legendary Burgundy producer. Benjamin was considered a prodigy winemaker when he became the winemaker and General Manager of the famous Pommard producer Comte Armand at the tender age of 26! In 2007, he launched his own wine.
"You may remember that when I asked Allen Meadows, aka Burghound, on this video who he thought might be a natural heir to the late great Henri Jayer of Burgundy, one of the two people he cited was young Benjamin Leroux of Domaine Comte Armand." Jancis Robinson, Jan 2009
"Leroux’s passion, ambition and sheer talent have already resulted in a number of stunning, beautiful wines, but my sense is that the best is yet to come.” Wine Advocate # 194 May 2011
“I have never heard a more articulate and insightful presentation.” James Halliday on the Leroux 2008s Masterclass with Benjamin Leroux, The Australian, 11th September 2010.
