Ladoix Rouge AC 2015

Domaine Faiveley

Domaine Faiveley combines the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time honored traditions that have been practiced for centuries within their 19th century cellars. Each terroir and each vintage, benefits from special attention which makes the cuvées unique. Each bottle therefore becomes the faithful reflection of its terroir.

Terroir: Ladoix is a small village bordering Aloxe-Corton and encompassing the northern portion of the hill of Corton. DOmaine Faiveley’s parcel sits mid village on a slight eastern pitch. Soils are dominated by limestone.

Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following a 15-18 day maceration the must undergoes primary fermentation in a combination of stainless steel and wooden vats. The young wines are aged for 14 to 16 months in one year and older oak barrels.

Additional Information

On the nose, this wine has good intense varied aromas of red fruit and spices mixed with woody scents. After a rather lively attack, this wine shows fine volume with a medium tannic structure. A delicate and well-balanced wine.
