It's a remarkably deep and powerful wine in the context of Savigny, with blackcurrant, cocoa, and some red cherry too. The finish is bright with powdery tannins.
Grape Variety100%Pinot Noir
Ben was born in 1975 in Beaune, not to a vigneron family, yet decided in his teens that wine was what he wanted to do. After his enology studies, he worked at Cos d'Estournel in Bordeaux, Domaine Drouhin in Oregon, Louis Jadot in Beaune, and Comte Armand in Pommard, where he was named technical director and manager at the age of 24. In 2007, he founded his own domaine and négoce. The lion's share of this vintage comes from the outstanding Aux Fournaux terroir in the north of the village. Then there's Les Peuillets (in the south) and Ez Connardises (in the heart of the village), to make up the traditional trio of parcels. While the latter plots were de-stemmed, the Aux Fournaux parcel was fermented with 80% whole-bunch (a rarity in Leroux Savigny). The entire cuvée saw next to no new oak.
