Sparkling light golden yellow with delicate green reflections.
The delicate and precise nose of the 2018 Ladoix "Sur Les Vris" enchants the senses. Fine bright fruit notes of pear, quince and honeydew melon emerge from the glass. With enough oxygen contact, wood spice reveals itself in the form of toasted almonds and freshly churned butter. All aromas flow harmoniously into one another and at the same time remain in the background with Burgundian finesse. Intense minerality frames this aroma beautifully.
The palate flatters the senses, on the one hand with juicy and charming fruit and on the other hand with a fine spicy structure that animatingly drifts into saltiness. An extremely stimulating white Burgundy, which shows itself powerful and at the same time beguiling. One enjoys the combination of complexity and drinkability. Already solo a real pleasure, with elegant cuisine, this fine drop is at its best.
