Ladoix-Serrigny is the northernmost village of the Côte de Beaune. Along with Aloxe-Corton, this village shares the prestigious hill of Corton, along with some Premier Cru vineyards all its own. The area has been settled since at least the 11th century and boasts several architectural gems, including the 13th-century Saint-Marcel church and the Château Serrigny.
In many ways, Ladoix-Serrigny is a “sleeper” appellation in the Côte d’Or, offering great value. Our “Les Gréchons” Premier Cru is no exception.
With a beautiful golden color, our Ladoix Premier Cru “Les Gréchons” displays aromas of white flowers, pineapple and fresh mango. Discreetly highlighted by the fragrance of honeysuckle and dried fruits, its complexity is also found on the palate, where finesse and elegance dance with the opulence of the vintage. The finish, bursting with energy, resonates, never seeming to weaken.
Now to 15 years
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.
