Ladoix Blanc AC 2017

Domaine Faiveley

Terroir: Ladoix-Serrigny is one of the Côte de Beaune’s oldest winemaking villages. The first Lords of Ladoix were present here as far back as the 13th century.

Vinification: The grapes are harvested and sorted by hand. The musts are extracted using a pneumatic press before being settled. Vinification lasts for 4 weeks and takes place mainly in French oak barrels (less than a third of which are new oak) in our cellars at consistent, natural temperatures and hygrometry. The wine is aged in barrels for 12 months during which it is stirred regularly in order to keep the lees in contact with the wine. This results in excellent tension and aromatic complexity combined with a smooth and delicate palate.

Additional Information

Pale yellow with greenish glimmers. The nose reveals fresh, floral aromas and a touch of brioche. The palate is rich and powerful with toasty notes and a pleasant freshness. A lively and direct wine with excellent tension.

    "The village of Ladoix, some of the whose vines are in the Grand Cru of Corton, is somewhat unknown and therefore offers good value. This generous, ripe village wine is juicy with white fruits and wood aged.Its structure and balance with acidity are just right and it is ready to drink." October 2019 Issue.

    "The 2017 Ladoix Blanc Village is a relatively new addition to the portfolio, purchased 20 years ago and replanted in 2007, and then, in 2011, entirely grafted over with Chardonnay. It has a slightly resinous bouquet, hints of strawberry emerging with time, and a touch of toffee apple too. The lively, focused palate is well balanced, displaying crisp acidity and a light marmalade note on the tangy finish."
