  • TASTING NOTE: "Rather more colour here, bright crimson, the whole bunches give more intensity to the bouquet, red berry alpine strawberry, and a juicy generous finish. This is really lovely in a medium intense setting and very persistent. The crop was 24 hl/ha from a vine which never gives enormously. Superb.”  92-94 points, Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy
  • ABOUT THE WINE: Les Santenots is one of the top 1er Cru sites of Volnay. Here, across the Meursault border, the clay-rich soils give wines of perfumed depth and silken structure. To give you some idea of the site’s quality, many years ago we asked Leroux if there was one vineyard in Volnay he would like to work with, and he replied Santenots without hesitation, mentioning that he buys the wine of this vineyard from his friend Dominique Lafon each year. Of course, he then went on to speak about Rugiens and Caillerets (the most revered sites of the village—and vineyards that he was finally able to access in 2018). Leroux’s Santenots is drawn from one hectare of estate-owned 70-year-old vines, worked organically. By Volnay standards, Leroux harvested a pretty decent crop in 2021, and 35% whole bunches were used in the ferment. A gorgeous, floral-scented Santenots this year.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Benjamin Leroux is one of the most exiting modern producers in Burgundy. He created a name for himself at Domaine du Comte Armand (where he was appointed the general manager at just 24 years of age) before setting up his own negociant business in 2007. Today he owns or manages about 30% of the vineyards that go into his wines with his range of wines coming from across the Cote d'Or, from Chassagne-Montrachet to Gevrey-Chambertin. His own holdings are all certified organic (with many biodynamic principals also applied) with sourced vineyards sharing his own farming philosophy's. His winemaking is well known for his discreet handling of oak and purity of fruit expression.
