Ladoix Premier Cru "Les Gréchons" 2016

  • Ladoix Premier Cru “Les Gréchons” 2016 presents intense aromas of frangipani flowers, lemon and ripe pear alongside notes of ripe pineapple, vanilla, and honey. The palate reflects these flavors, and displays hints of honeysuckle and yellow peaches. Generous and perfectly balanced, this complex thie wine can be appreciated from now, even though it will take a few years to reach its apogee.

  • Ladoix is the final vineyard in northern Côte de Beaune before entering the Côte de Nuits. “Les Gréchons” is one of the highest plots positioned on the steep sides of the Hill of Corton, where you once could find ancient quarries. Steep sedimentary, fossil-rich soils produce an intense and mineral Chardonnay enjoyable today, but also ageable for years.
