His son Joseph, who invested a lot of effort in the development of family winemaking, wine brought Domain Leroy among the best wines of Burgundy. His efforts were rewarded with several major awards and medals of prestigious competitions. In 1919 the family business includes Henri Leroy, which greatly expands production with the commercialization of de-vie distillery at Segonzac in the heart of Grande Champagne. In 1942, he bought half of the prestigious "Domaine de la Romanee-Conti" and entirely devoted 40 years of his life to its development, turning into a real gem of a domain of Burgundy.
