Edmond Cornu et Fil Ladoix French Burgundy Red Wine 750 ml

$39.99

“A wine of charm with its silky tannins, a splash of red fruits, and a tantalizing floral bouquet, it’s known as “the cat” chez Cornu as its moves across the palate with a feline grace and has the finesse for which pinot is renowned. It receives typical Cornu treatment in the cellar: hand harvested, destemmed, racked into small barrel (perhaps 10% to 15% new oak) and bottled after one (perhaps a maximum of two) racking and eighteen months of elevage. The parcel is about ¾ of a hectare in size and the vines are 35 years of more in age. We buy two barrels (600 bottles) per vintage.” Neal Rosenthal Importer

Rich’s Notes “Berry, licorice nose with notes of clove and warm berry, good color and grip”

A deeply pitched and brooding nose reflects notes of both red and dark cherry, along with earth and wood nuances. The rich and relatively full-bodied flavors possess excellent mid-palate concentration as well as plenty of punch on the firm, robust muscular and rustic finale. This is a very serious Ladoix villages that offers very fine quality. Recommended for both quality and value. Outstanding Top Value – Allen Meadows, Burghound #66
