Pinot Noir and Chardonnay
Looking at the shelves of Aux Crieurs de Vin, one of the top wine shops in Champagne, amongst the bottles of Selosse, Prevost, and Cedric Bouchard, one unknown label sticks out from all the rest... Ruppert-Leroy is an up-and-coming domaine started by the young Bénédicte Leroy, who is making some of the most exciting wines in the Aube today. In the 1980s, the Leroy's decided to convert a clearing to vineyards when it was no longer economically viable to raise sheep on, initially selling all the fruit to the local coop. Now practicing biodynamics, Bénédicte is focused on making wine in a method that is as simple as possible; each cuvée comes from a single vintage of a single vineyard, bottled ‘brut nature’ with no dosage.
