Wrapped in bright, luminous gold tones, the wine shimmers with delicate greens as if it were a precious coin in the morning sun.
The 2018 Ladoix "Sur Les Vris" entices with a refined nose that reveals itself lightly and precisely through its nuances. Enticing notes of pear, quince and honeydew melon dance from the glass, with a balanced aeration revealing the woody presence through nuances of toasted almonds and fresh butter. Each aroma blends harmoniously, yet remains subtly in the background, in true Burgundian style. An intense minerality frames this bouquet beautifully.
The first sip expertly ensnares the palate, supple with juicy fruitiness, perfectly paired with a fine savoury structure that leads into a tangy salty aftertaste. An exciting white Burgundy that is powerful but seductive at the same time. One can confidently enjoy the combination of complexity and drinking pleasure. Alone or accompanied by fine dishes, this drop becomes a real pleasure.
Reward yourself with the delightful interplay of linguini accompanied by a pumpkin cream sauce and chopped hazelnuts. Indulge your palate with grilled scallops on a butternut squash cream. Another excellent option is the crispy guinea fowl, served with a Russet mushroom roulade and a hearty mushroom juice. All excellent pairings that underline the outstanding character of this wine.
