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 vines for this Bourgogne are situated in the village of Ladoix-Serrigny.
An underrated gem of a village in the Cote de Beaune, Ladoix is famed for providing a stunning balance of tart red fruits and riper black fruits, a rarity for reasonably priced elegant red Burgundies. The first whiff of cranberries, raspberries and heirloom strawberries is captivating immediately. What comes next is the elegant savouriness of sage, rosemary and sautéed chestnut mushrooms. The light, but velvety tannins linger on the long finish.
Confit quail legs with roasted butternut squash, and sage butter gnocchi.
An off-piste appellation which offers excellent value from some very impressive vineyard sites.
