  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Xavier Durand 2012 Ladoix

    Domaine Xavier Durand
    2012 Ladoix
     

    $22

    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.

    • 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

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Gaston & Pierre Ravaut 2010 Ladoix Premier Cru Les Basses Mourottes

    Domaine Gaston & Pierre Ravaut
    2010 Ladoix Premier Cru
    Les Basses Mourottes

    $34

    Grown just a dirt-road across from Grand Cru Corton Hautes Mourottes, this Ladoix Premier Cru is a refined Pinot Noir with an excellent balance of tannins, fruit, and acidity. Drinkable now, will keep a few more years.

    • Light, but intense with great backbone and balance. Offers earthy notes, white mushrooms, raspberry, cranberry, and something a bit dusty on the finish. The solid structure suggests this wine will improve at least through 2017.

      Food pairing: Risotto

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Gaston & Pierre Ravaut 2010 Ladoix Premier Cru La Corvée

    Domaine Gaston & Pierre Ravaut
    2010 Ladoix Premier Cru
    La Corvée

    $36

    Grown on South-facing slopes at the Northern edge of the Côte de Beaune, this Premier Cru Pinot Noir combines the richness and complexity of the Côte de Nuits with the finesse of the Côte de Beaune. Drinkable now, but may benefit from another year of cellaring.

    • Giving little away at this stage but with leather, nutmeg, and floral notes on the nose. Develops a more pronounced spicy character with air exposure. Similarly tight on the palate, but a little patience begins to reveal a core of concentrated fruit emerging from behind the mask of tannins, which linger on a protracted finish. Distant but with solid structure suggesting this wine will be a long keeper—and better for the wait.

      Food pairing: Rabbit; duck; lamb; roasted chicken; earthy, mushroom-scented dishes
