CAPITAIN-GAGNEROT LADOIX 1ER CRU 'LES GRECHONS ET FOUTRIERES' 2016 - 6 PACK
Autumn has arrived in Burgundy, and here at the Domaine de Cromey we are dipping in to wine pairings that let you know that the season has changed. Here's a Chestnut and Cepe soup with Foie Gras that Ellie served last night. We dranks a Ladoix 1er Cru 'Grechons' from Capitain-Gagnerot with it, and it was like a little Corton-Charlemagne, deep and rich and earthy... like the elements of the soup .

Capitain-Gagnerot Ladoix 1er Cru 'Les Grechons et Foutrieres' 2016
The Capitain Ladoix 1er Cru Grechons is very much an insider's wine. It's sold almost exclusively in the region (or to those who know Capitain well). Year upon year we have tasted the new Grechons at the same time that we taste the latest Capitain Corton Charlemagne, often standing in the freezing cold when the barrels have been taken outside to cold-precipitate the tartaric acids. The number of times we have mistaken the Grechons for the Charlemagne cannot be just chance! There is a similarity in the minerality, with that Corton Mountain limestone smokiness unlain with honey and white flowers.
