2016 Michel Mallard Ladoix 1er Corvée

2016 Michel Mallard Ladoix 1er Corvée


For the Corvée, we have a deeper wine, with more matière and a slightly darker fruit profile. It is still remarkably elegant, and a plain stunningly good wine that promises fantastic ageing potential. Again, this is a no brainer on the stage of the Côte d’Or……
“The 2016 Ladoix 1er Cru la Corvées is slightly deeper in color than the Joyeuses. It has a very well-defined nose with blackcurrant and bilberry fruit, violet scents emerging with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a crisp line of acidity and a vein of blood orange and marmalade on the finish. This is an outstanding Ladoix premier cru, one of the best that I have ever tasted, in fact.” 91-93 Neil Martin

“A more deeply pitched nose combines notes of plum and dark currant with those of earth and pretty floral nuances. As is always the case, there is more volume, power and structure if less refinement to the medium weight flavors that possess a taut muscularity on the solidly persistent if moderately rustic finale. This age-worthy effort is going to need at least a few years of bottle age first as it’s tightly wound at present. (89-92)/2024+” Allan Meadows
