Ladoix Premier Cru
“Les Gréchons”

Welcome to the Côte de Beaune

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.

Varietal: Chardonnay

Ladoix Premier Cru “Les Gréchons” 2014

One of our perennial favorites – Ladoix “Les Grechons” Premier Cru. In the glass, the clear lemon glow makes a great first impression. Incredible aromas of pear, quince, lemon marmalade and delicate creamy notes reward the nose. Those same flavors dominate as well. The palate too is awarded with a moderate acidity and alcohol, with ample support from a full body. The texture is velvety. The finish? It lingers. So cancel your plans for the immediate future.
In summary: this wine is remarkable. Everything works together in unison: the aromas are expertly balanced by a refreshing acidity, which in turn complement the complex primary, secondary and tertiary flavors. With its firm acidity and concentration, this 2014 has the potential to age, developing more complexity with time. Of course, you’ll be equally rewarded if you seize the day today.

Ladoix Premier Cru “Les Gréchons” 2016

Ladoix Premier Cru “Les Gréchons” 2017

Complex and perfectly balanced

Behind its pale lemon color, Ladoix Premier Cru “Les Gréchons” 2017 presents delicate aromas of frangipani flowers, lemon, and pear alongside notes of honeysuckle, acacia, and cream. The palate reflects these flavors and displays hints of soft spices, almonds, and lemon zest. Complex and perfectly balanced, with an oaky long finish, this white wine can be appreciated from now, even though it will take a few years to reach its apogee.

A generous year

2017 began the best possible way, with a sunny and warm spring and no threats of hail or frost. Bud break happened at the beginning of April, soon followed by blooming. Summer was marked by scorching episodes, pushing maturation forward. Harvest started over the last days of August, two weeks earlier than usual, and lasted until mid-September. With healthy, ripe grapes and yields back to normal, 2017 has since proven its high-quality and long-lasting potential.
