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.
Red currant, pomegranate, cherry, some tobacco and wet earth. Medium body with red fruit, fine tannins, juicy acidity.
If you are coming from Dijon, it is at Ladoix that the Côte de Beaune begins. Ladoix shares with Aloxe-Corton and Pernand-Vergelesses the honour of producing the famous wines of the hill of Corton. The appellation was instituted in 1937. This wine comes from one of the domaine’s monopole vineyard, Les Chagnots, an individually named plot which is entirely owned by the d’Ardhuy family. The grapes are manually harvested and fermented in small vats.
