Domaine Michel Mallard et Fils - Ladoix Blanc 2020

IN STOCK

The vines grow at the bottom of the hill on the climats* Madones and La Vigne Adaim, and enjoy a sunny southeastern exposure. The name Madones comes from its former owner in 1889, François Madon and his daughter Louise Madon. As for La Vigne Adaim, it was a parcel owned by Colonel Adam in 1925. 

20+ year old vines with very heavy soil with a clayey texture, which came about from the weathering of the geological formation of Bresse marlstone deposits. The high clay content and its position at the foot of the slope allow the soil to receive a good supply of water.

Elevage is an essential step for achieving a quality wine, and this is why we take special care in selecting our barrels. The Ladoix blanc is designed to be kept for many years, it is aged 12 months in 20% new wood casks (350-litre capacity). We strive to preserve the aromatic uniqueness of this nectar by bringing out its personality and not trying to conceal it. The cask is a true ally for ensuring the wine’s complexity; it bestows the cuvée with a certain delicacy and refinement.

The Ladoix blanc‘s nose opens up with a bouquet of white fruits. The attack on the palate is bold and occurs amid hints of pear and lemon topped with a spicy note. A fine balance !

Pairings: Pâtés, terrines, blanquette of poultry or grilled chicken breasts, raw or oven-baked fish. Niche with Camembert, Brie or Gruyère.
