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.
2018 was a great vintage with intense wines that have a lot of body, ripe tannins and a smooth fullness. The natural power of the Corton is ideal for this year, as it still provides the necessary structure to create something really big here.
