2022 Benjamin Leroux, Pommard, Rugiens Haut, 1er Cru, Burgundy, France

We come together around the idea of saying “yes”: A small word that contains everything.

Benjamin Leroux is widely regarded as one of the greatest vignerons of the young generation in Burgundy. Legendary for their purity, each bottle of chardonnay and pinot noir that he releases is quickly snapped up by collectors around the world. He pushes for the highest degree of care in the vineyards both with his own vines and those he buys. Biodynamics are followed whenever possible and organic viticulture always. He makes around fifty different cuvees in each vintage and acknowledges that, "It takes more time and more energy to work these plots,” but, he continues, “It fills me with energy, too. Touching so many different terroirs. I don't feel as though I am losing my time. "


After leaving Comte Armand, Benjamin Leroux said he would never make another Pommard because he had "worked with the best of the village already"... that is, until he was given the opportunity to work with Rugiens Hauts in 2015. We can see why: this is really something special!
