Ladoix Blanc 2013 - Domaine d'Ardhuy

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 heart of Ladoix and is one of its greatest ambassador. Made of older vines (over 30 years old, 25% of which are Pinot Blanc!), this Ladoix has seduced us right away.

Why we picked this wine: A great example from a little-known appellation in the heart of the prestigious Côte de Beaune. Trust us and have a try, it is definitely worth many Chassagne-Montrachet or Meursault for under half the price! You will not find this Ladoix anywhere else in the UK.

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...

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,...
