A particularly fine example of this small and little-known Burgundy appellation, this Pinot Noir is a must for the value seeker looking for off-the-beaten-track wines.

  • This is an earthy wine that is just starting to come out of its shell. Nice cherry, mushroom and herbal notes. Put this bottle in your cellar for a few years and it will continue to develop nicely.

    Food pairing: Mushroom risotto

  • Pure fruit on the nose, tending toward strawberries, but overlaid with leather, musk, and darker fruit scents. Delicate yet intense. Keenly focused, with just enough acidity to balance the fruit and light tannins. Rich, seductive mid-palate preceding a moderately long, slightly grainy finish. A very pretty wine, in every sense—but not without substance. Far more refined than commonly encountered Ladoix. That Xavier Durand devotes this kind of attention to this oft-overlooked appellation speaks volumes about his dedication to fine winemaking.

    Food pairing: Duck; roasted chicken dishes; rabbit or other game; mushroom or lentil dishes
