Sensory Description: The 2018 Ladoix Pinot Noir presents a dark red color in the glass, indicative of its depth and richness. The nose is greeted with an enticing bouquet of wild fruits, including wild berries and cherries. On the palate, this wine is round and ample, with a silky and harmonious structure. The flavors are elegant and fine, supported by a greasy texture that adds complexity. The wine's finesse and balance make it suitable for aging, allowing it to develop further depth over time.

Winemaker's Background: The Cornu family's winemaking heritage dates back to 1870 when they settled in Ladoix and established their domaine. Edmond Cornu took over the estate in 1956, expanding and refining the vineyard holdings with his son Pierre, who now leads the winery alongside his cousin, Emmanuel Boireau. The estate covers 15 hectares, predominantly planted with Pinot Noir, and spans across several prestigious communes in the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits.

Serving Suggestions: The 2018 Ladoix pairs beautifully with simple and refined dishes, particularly those featuring red meats or game. Serve this wine at approximately 60-65°F (15-18°C) to fully appreciate its nuanced flavors and silky texture. It is a perfect companion for a classic French meal, such as coq au vin or beef bourguignon, or for enjoying on its own as it evolves in the glass.

Vintage Background: The 2018 Burgundy vintage is regarded as excellent, with conditions that led to rich, sun-ripened wines. Despite the heat and high alcohol content, the wines retained a pleasing freshness. This vintage offers great options for both early drinking and aging, with notable complexity and potential for development.
