Bénédicte Leroy’s parents were originally sheep farmers settling in Essoyes in 1975 to start a small farm on a clearing above the town. In the 1980s they learned they could plant grapes on the land they had been renting for the sheep to graze. Little by little, they created a domaine which today is four hectares of vineyards. Bénédicte took over the domaine 2009 and started making her own wines and converting to organic agriculture. She and her husband Emmanuel apply the principles of biodynamics in both the vineyard and the cellar. Their quest for the simplest winemaking has lead them toward the spirit of ‘vin nature’. Each cuvée comes from a single vintage of a single vineyard, bottled ‘brut nature’ with no dosage.
