Ladoix Blanc AC 2019

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 2019 Ladoix Blanc exhibits notes of citrus zest, warm bread, white flowers and crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, chiseled and incisive, it's concentrated and mineral, with a long, chalky finish. This was picked with 14.2% potential alcohol and a pH of 3.0—an extreme example of 2019's combination of elevated maturity with low pH."

    "The 2019 Ladoix Blanc comes from young vines regrafted onto Pinot Noir in 2013. It has a pleasant bouquet of lime flower and peach aromas, a touch of French patisserie in the background. The palate is well balanced, nothing extraordinarily complex with attractive pear, green apple and orange pith notes, moderate in terms of length. No frills here, but recommended for the price."
