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!

17/20 "Wafts of smoke and baked apple on the nose, plus cinnamon and cardamom spices. Lovely easy complexity in a rounded, full style. (RH)"
Ladoix is one of the most up-and-coming appellations in Burgundy. Probably the least known wine in Côte de Beaune, it exhibits similar characteristics to its neighbour, Corton Charlemagne - floral aromas, beautiful minerality and long finish. Well-made Ladoix are often compared to more prestigious wines of Burgundy. The Domaine is actually located in the...
Wines from the Aloxe Corton appellation are among the most tannic wines in Burgundy, and are therefore perfect for ageing. If you are able to leave it aside for a few years, you will be absolutely thrilled with it. It is a highly complex Pinot Noir with aromas of black fruit, underwood and spices. A truly beautiful bottle for any fan of complex Burgundy...
Two different parcels produce the Bourgogne of the domain. One is 20 years old, the other is around 50. As a result, this Pinot Noir clearly punches above its weight, with more flavours and body brought by the old vines - and a bit of oak barrels. A beautiful red for your pleasure, with expressive aromas of cherry and raspberry. You will love it with...
If you are looking for a real treat, have a try at this! Clos de Vougeot is one of the most iconic appellations in Burgundy. With only 2,700 bottles produced every year in total, it is a privilege to be able to offer this bottle. It is a powerful red with an intense colour, showing an exceptionally complex nose with aromas of black fruit and flowers....
Here comes the star of our selection of white wines. If you are looking to get a piece of a Burgundy myth, this Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru is the one. These old vines (over 40 years old) give super concentrated grapes of Chardonnay, with an ideal maturity. The wine exhibits the usual minerality of Corton Charlemagne wines, with complex aromas of yellow...
For both white and red wines, Ladoix is one of the most undervalued appellations in Burgundy, offering fantastic value in the bottle. Domaine d'Ardhuy is one of the very best producers in Ladoix, and we loved this wine. Made with 25-year old vines on average, this medium-bodied red boasts delicious flavours of red berries, with distinct spices in the...
In the world of Burgundian Pinot Noir, Nuits-Saint-Georges is one of the appellations producing medium to full-bodied wines which can age well - somehow reminiscent of Pommard. This bottle exhibits concentrated flavours of cassis with notes of leather and mint. Spicy tannins and oak ageing (30% in new barrels) provide a solid structure. Beautiful today,...
Domaine d'Ardhuy produces some of the most prestigious appellations in Burgundy, such as this amazing Puligny-Montrachet. The relatively high location of the parcel "Le Trézin" ensures an ideal acidity and a beautiful minerality. Barrels used to age this wine are made of oak containing limited aromas in order to keep this freshness, while keeping pleasant...
We are happy to be able to offer this 6-year old Savigny 1er Cru "Les Peuillets", which is just perfect to drink now. If you fancy Burgundy reds at the top of their drinking window, this wine is for you. It exhibits a beautiful nose of red and black berries with sweet spices. On the palate, it is a round wine with silky tannins and a long peppery finish....
What we love about Domaine d'Ardhuy is that they treat their "small" cuvées with the same care as the upmarket ones - and this "simple" Chardonnay proves it. A great refreshing white offering an outstanding value for money. Flavours of citrus and white peach are perfectly balanced by a refreshing minerality and a nice finish. Top notch for the price,...
