Benjamin Leroux only wants the best—the best grapes, from the best locations, in the best winemaking region on Earth. His wines range from stellar (and affordable) Bourgogne Blanc and Rouge all the way up to some of the finest Grand Cru wines Burgundy has to offer.

At the time of his domaine’s founding, in 2007, land in the Côte d’Or fetched prices to the tune of millions of euros—and prices have only gone up. Rather than spend a king’s ransom on vineyards, Ben prefers to purchase grapes from established growers, already intimately familiar with their particular parcels. The majority are farmed either organically or biodynamically, all with a goal of sustainability in mind.

He claims we will never see an estate-bottled wine from him. Why should he expect grapes grown on land he owns to be superior to grapes farmed by his friends and neighbors? His particular skill is in the cellar—in fact, he’s been training in the field of winemaking since the tender age of 13, when he enrolled in Beaune’s Lycée Viticole.

His pursuit of knowledge led him to stints in Bordeaux, Oregon, and New Zealand, and a long-term position as general manager at Pommard’s Comte Armand. His decades-long career in winemaking has provided all of the knowledge necessary to focus on the cellar—and the ability to establish relationships with only the finest grape growers. You might say that he’s cherry-picking Burgundy’s best...grapes.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 91
"The 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin Village has a slightly stemmy bouquet (around 20% whole bunch), dark berry fruit laced with cold tea, just a slight beetroot note emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, firm grip, fine depth with a crisp finish. Very fine." -Vinous

Focus On: Burgundy

Burgundy has long been the world's most famous wine region. But, underneath all the prestige, this region can be hard to get to know.

While Burgundy offers many great trophies from top producers in well-known villages like Vosne Romanee and Puligny Montrachet, it also offers excellent values to anyone willing to explore beyond the famous names. Our collection– one of the largest in the U.S. – has plenty of both!

From the very basics of Burgundy's regions and wines to the specific terroirs of individual single vineyards--
everything you need to know about Bourgogne is just a click away!
