Wine Spectator describes wines from this century old estate as “bursting with ripe fruit, pure, bordering on exotic”. From a tiny appellation straddling some of the great vineyards of Corton, their 1er Cru Ladoix has ravishing fruit and complexity.
"Pure, poised, elegant red fruit with layers of complexity to unfurl. A young Premier Cru"
Jehan Sacaze Buyer for Burgundy
Even well versed Burgundy aficionados may have trouble placing the tiny appellation of Ladoix Serigny. As wine writer Hugh Johnson explained, “It’s villages like Ladoix that answer the question ‘Where can we buy good, authentic Burgundy for less than a fortune?’” Ladoix’s vineyards stretch up the hill of Corton to encompass both the great Corton and Corton Charlemagne. The Ravaut family have been tending vines there for six generations. It was Vincent and Pierre’s grandfather who, in the 1920s, planted vines, selling the wine to local clientele. He won a Gold at Paris in 1936. Today the brothers continue the work and are gaining a great reputation with superb wines like this. This is a supreme barrique-aged Pinot Noir. Open early or cellar.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
