Benjamin Leroux Saint-Romain Sous le Chateau 2022

13% abv

Vol- 75cl

The vineyard of Sous le Chateau is a cooler site that lays at 380 meters above sea level. The vineyard is right below where the Chateau of Saint-Romain use to stand. Benjamin Leroux looks after 1.12 hectares of vines here planted from 1930 to 2000 on rocky limestone soils.

Edgy and lively, with a creamy spice and ripe nectarine fruit. Delightfully fresh aromas of lime, honeysuckle and white flower notes.

“The 2022 Saint Romain Sous Le Château, which came from tank on the lees, has a lively green apple and grapefruit-scented bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with a waxy texture, tropical hints of guava and dried pineapple with a dash of lemongrass towards the finish. Fine.” 88-91 points, Neal Martin, Vinous, Oct 2023

Having created a name for himself as regisseur (general manager) of Domaine du Comte Armand in Pommard, Benjamin Leroux established, with English backing, a small negociant business based in Beaune since 2007. The range is confined to the Cote d’Or, from Chassagne-Montrachet to Gevrey-Chambertin, with the intention of developing farming contracts or indeed purchasing vineyards in the future.

The possibilities are very exciting for this exceptionally talented vigneron. Benjamin is a master at delivering purity of fruit alongside a seamless texture in his wines which have only the subtlest influence of oak. One of Benjamin’s favourite locations for white wine vineyards is the border between Auxey-Duresses and Meursault, which is where Les Vireuils can be found. Here the natural weight of Meursault is enhanced by the fresher minerality typical of the side valley of Auxey-Duresses.
