Benjamin Leroux makes his Grand Cru Corton from just 0.2 hectares in the south-facing parcels of En Charlemagne, Les Bressandes and Le Corton. A third of the harvest is fermented as whole bunch grapes, of course without added yeast. After fermentation, the wine is saged in 300L barrels for 18 months, a third of which are new.
2020 was a great vintage with intense wines that have a lot of complexity, ripe tannins and a classic structure. The natural power of the Corton Grand Cru is ideal for this vintage, as it still provides the necessary extract to create something really big here.
