Ladoix 1er cru "Les Gréchons"
Situated in the upper slopes of Ladoix, this east facing parcel of vines, a continuation of Corton-Charlemagne, has fairly deep soils, composed with a mix of white marl and clay. The vines are 40 years old.
After harvesting by hand, carried-out when the grapes have reached full maturity, the grapes are gently pressed in a pneumatic press. The must is left to settle overnight and put into barrels, 30% in new oak barrels. The fermentation starts naturally using indigenous yeast and bacteria. After being racked 9 months later, the wines undergo a fine filtration using a membrane filter of 5μ and are then bottled by gravity.
Rich and intense. Crème de citron, and ripe, citrus fruit. On the palate, the wine is crisp and clean, with great minerality. The oak is mellow and smooth. This is an easy to drink wine, even when young.
8 to 10 years (stored in the right temperature and humidity conditions).
