Ladoix Pinot Noir 2017 Domaine Cruchandeau

Ruby red color with garnet shadows.

On the nose it shows the whole class of Pinot Noir in its land of choice. It has intense, complex and fine aromas of berries, with red currant, cherry, black cherry and pomegranate. Follows the delicate rose and sweet spicy notes of vanilla, nutmeg, juniper and toasted ones of pipe tobacco and the unlit fireplace.

On the palate it is of the exact same elegance. Excellent structure with well-defined tannins however mature and not very pungent, and adequate minerality and acidity. Softness not only compensates, but gives volume to the sip. Consequently balanced and in harmony among all its parts. The aromas, that is, the aromas that emanate from the palate and go back to the nose, are of berries and spices.

In the complex of the three aspects Julien Cruchandeau designs a Fabulous Pinot Noir, extremely indicative of the variety and the region of origin.

Excellent value for money, because the quality is that of a Premier Cru.
