ABOUT THE WINE
Winemakers in Burgundy since 1453, the current generation of the Nudant family manages some 16 hectares of small parcels dotted throughout the Cote d'Or. Vineyard work is all carried out by hand, in the spirit of minimal intervention. The 1er Cru vineyard called Les Buis recalls a sacred tree of the Druids which grew on the site.
An impeccable vintage, 2018 Burgundies show opulent and exuberant red and dark fruits, with a balanced zingy acidity still in play. Ladoix, being a more elegant village, offers the best of both worlds by providing the quintessential savoury notes of mushrooms and forest floor. But this time, the ripeness of 2018 makes this wine extra attractive to sip, even by itself. One to drink now or to age for another decade.
Excellent with honey-roasted pork shoulder and braised root vegetables as well as a lamb leg bourguignon.
An off-piste appellation which offers excellent value from some very impressive vineyard sites.
