2013 Domaine Gaston & Pierre Ravaut Ladoix 1er Cru Les Basses Mourottes


Ladoix-Serrigny, Côte de Beaune, Côte-d’Or, Burgundy, France

This Ladoix 1er Cru is a refined pinot noir with an excellent balance of tannins, fruit, and acidity. Light, but intense with great backbone and balance. The palate offers up earthy notes, white mushrooms, raspberry, cranberry, and a soft, dusty finish. The solid structure suggests this wine will improve with a few more years, but is drinking well now.
