Cornu Ladoix Vieilles Vignes 2015 375ml
“The cat” is what the winemaker Edmond Cornu and his family call the distinctive nose of this red Burgundy. “It moves across the palate with a feline grace and has the finesse for which pinot is renowned.” True that. The Ladoix cru receives is hand-harvested, destemmed, racked into small barrel (10% to 15% new oak) and bottled after one (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. Two barrels (600 bottles) per vintage come to the United States.
