Benjamin Leroux Burgundy Masterclass
We are incredibly excited to invite you to Perth’s first Benjamin Leroux Masterclass to taste through the 2017 release from one of the most gifted and knowledgeable wine growers in all of Burgundy. Leroux has always been considered somewhat of 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.
While his range includes many famous terroirs, 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. He has never been in charge of a finer roster of vineyards, and, consequently, there have been few finer releases from a grower that is now at the very top of his game.
Leroux describes 2017 as a vintage he would happily take every year—an assessment borne out in an absolutely stunning range of wines. The whites have great mineral tension and pulpy succulence, while the reds are bright, aromatic and pretty with the body and depth to encourage ageing. Both sets of wines show great class and intensity and are, importantly, a joy to drink.
