Benjamin Leroux described 2017 as a "relatively easy vintage thanks to a growing season that was quite warm, dry and without climatic incidents save for a late April frost scare. I chose to begin picking with the whites on the 26th of August and brought in very clean and ripe fruit where the potential alcohols ranged from 12.5 to 13.2% with an average of about 12.8%.
