Benjamin Leroux

There has been a lot said about Benjamin over the years, and he is clearly a talent among his generation. It almost seems impossible that someone so young could be compared to the likes of Henri Jayer, especially considering he does not come from a family with any land holdings or winemaking history. He decided as a teenager that he wanted to be a vigneron, and after finishing enology school, worked at Cos d’Estournel, Domaine Drouhin in Oregon, and Louis Jadot. He was even named the technical director and manager at the famous Comte Armand in Pommard at the astonishing age of 24.



It would be difficult to overstate the importance of France to the wine world. With a rich history of wine production across virtually all of France over the last thousand years many of the grape species that are known for producing benchmark wines from all over the world had their beginnings in France. Over centuries vignerons refined their focus on what grapes thrived and transmitted a sense of place.
