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.

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.
