Capitain Gagnerot Ladoix 1er Cru 'Bois Roussot' 2015
We could tell you all about the soil make-up in the Ladoix 1er cru vineyard ‘Bois Roussot’, but suffice it to say that when the Capitains planted, they need a jack-hammer to break up the limestone! So you can imagine this ruby red, very mineral, red-fruit Ladoix, powerful but fine, with supple tannins and the trademark Capitain 10% new oak. A classic red Burgund
Chateau de Chamilly Mercurey 'Clos La Perriere' Monopole 2014
‘Exuberant’ is the word that springs to mind. This single-vineyard Mercurey is wholly owned by the Desfontaines, and is situated in the heart of the village. It is bright, juicy and full, with soft, round spicy black fruit. Open and balanced, with depth but not heaviness. A nice initial finish on primary Pinot notes, but it opens in the glass to early hints of secondary Pinot earth, tobacco cinnamon and leather. Bright, smoky and long. A nice glass of wine.
