From the producers:
• Appellation: AOC Ladoix
• Encépagement: Pinot Noir (100%)

The village of Ladoix borders on the Côte de Nuits and brings the black fruits of that region into a marriage with the red fruits of the Côte de Beaune to make a wonderfully complex and satisfying wine, with darker-toned spices that display a touch more severity than those of the Chorey-lès-Beaune and Savigny-lès-Beaune.
