What the Critics say
'A notably more elegant nose of perfumed extract of red berry fruit and soft earth and spice nuances gives way to attractively vibrant and well-detailed middle weight flavors. There is good maturity to the supporting fine-grained tannins that contribute to a relatively refined mouth feel on the balanced finish. Drink: 2017+'
Benjamin Leroux, the gifted manager/winemaker of Domaine Comte Armand launched his own label with the 2007 vintage. He works from a brand new winery in the center of Beaune (just off the Boulevard) that he shares with Dominique Lafon and two other wine growers. The operation is very small and will eventually specialise, primarily, in Puligny and Volnay, but with many other appellations also covered. While there are over twenty terroirs produced, this is certainly a ‘micro negociant’ operation with only two to five barrels made of most of the cuvees.
