Domaine Parent Ladoix 1er Cru La Corvee 2019
The village of Ladoix sits just at the bottom of the hill of Corton. This vineyard is 37 years old, limestone at the top, heavier clay soils at the bottom. Domaine Parent own 0.3 hectare in the middle and bottom of the site.
100% destemmed. Fermented in open vat with pigeage during fermentation. 14 months in oak, 35% new oak as per Ann albeit the notes from Neal Martin Vinous say different. This was perhaps my favourite wine of the recent releases as it’s so delicious right now, very fragrant and open.
– Importer’s notes
The 2019 Ladoix La Corvée 1er Cru was entirely de-stemmed with no new oak. It has a fragrant bouquet with red cherries, crushed strawberry and light loamy aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy red fruit. Quite peppery in style, you would almost think there was some whole bunch in here. Fresh on the finish, this is a very commendable Ladoix from Anne Parent who confessed she used to be “confused by Ladoix”. Obviously not now!

Destemmed, not racked, 30% new wood. Plump crimson colour with a certain volume of fruit on the nose. Mature raspberry notes begin to emerge. This Ladoix offers a satisfying richness of fruit, brought up by a firmer structure behind, a tannin or two.
