D’Ardhuy Ladoix Les Chagnots Monopole (750ml)
Cote de Beaune
Domaine d’Ardhuy owns 42 hectares of vines in the Cote d’Or. The vines are managed carefully according to the principles of “lutte raisonnee”; where there is minimum use of chemical treatments thanks to continual management of the soil and vines in order to ensure vineyard health. Practices such as superficial ploughing during the Spring and Sumner and deep ploughing during vegetative dormancy cut the superficial vine roots and forces the roots deep into the soil for more terroir expression.
At Domaine d’Ardhuy the produce from each plot right from the harvest through to the bottling is handled with the utmost care and respect. The wines are fermented in small vats. The philosophy is to allow the terroir of each plot in the wide range of appellations, from Bourgogne Côte-d’Or up to Grand Cru, express itself through the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes and produce balanced wines which combine crisp, fresh fruit and body.
Red currant, pomegranate, cherry, some tobacco and wet earth. Medium body with red fruit, fine tannins, juicy acidity.
This wine comes from one of the domaine’s monopole vineyards, an individually named plot which is entirely owned by the d’Ardhuy family.
