Ladoix 1er Cru “Hautes Mourottes”

Ladoix 1er Cru “Hautes Mourottes” bottle

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.

Jean-Claude Boisset owns this small parcel, situated close to the Corton grand cru, as a monopole holding. It's an assertively oaked style, to be sure, but there's plenty of concentration and structure here, as well as the freshness of a comparatively cool site.
  • Winemaking

    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.

  • Nose

    Notes of black fruits, especially blackcurrant, floral and leathery aromas.

  • Palate

    Elegant attack with beautiful tannins. Blackcurrant and raspberry flavors.
