Ladoix 1er Cru Blanc "Le Rognet" 2015 - Domaine d'Ardhuy


We absolutely love the Ladoix from the Domaine. The Ladoix villages being sold-out already, we have secured a few cases of this astonishing Premier Cru. Situated on the hill of Corton, this parcel would probably be classified as Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru if vines had been planted before the classification. Developing delicious floral notes and great minerality, a nice buttery palate and a long finish. Almost a Corton-Charlemagne if not for the little extra complexity and richness that older vines would bring. Definitely worth trying!
