Created in 1970, there are just 94 ha of vineyards in Ladoix, ¾ of which produce red wine. The soils at the upper part of the slope where Les Hautes Mourottes is located are pebbly, reddish, limestone based with a high proportion of marls and considerable flintlimestone fragments. Les Hautes Mourottes is located just a few metres from the famous Corton-Renardes vineyard. In old local dialect, Mourottes referred to walls which would indicate that the vineyard was once surrounded by walls.
Aged on the lees for 20 months with no racking using a proportion of 45% new French oak barrels that had been toasted at low temperatures for a long time to impart a very delicate touch of oak to the wine.
Notes of black fruits, especially blackcurrant, floral and leathery aromas.
Elegant attack with beautiful tannins. Blackcurrant and raspberry flavors.
