Elegantly expressive, full of lovely rich stone fruit and melon character with hints of dried fruits and spice, toasted hazelnuts and hints of butterscotch. There's also a firm line of flinty minerality, and that delicious combination of texture, body and fresh acidity that the whites around Corton do so well. Fine enough to grace even the most fastidious Burgundy bibber's table.


Tasting Notes

Many of you will know the brilliant Chorey-Les-Beaune from Maratray Dubreuil, but while we have loved and wanted to import their Ladoix for the last four years, the demand has always been too great due to it's position directly next to the famous Corton-Charlemagne vineyards, and we have somehow always just missed out. This year, however, we were determined not to let the boat leave without us and got our order in before anyone could beat us to it. The 'Les Grechons' vineyard is an extension of the famous Corton-Charlemagne sites and so is the holy grail of Burgundy - exquisite fruit and talented winemaking without the 'fame-factor' prices. It's one of those wines for people really in the know
