2020 Michel Mallard Ladoix 1er Corvée

$65.00

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 2018 Ladoix La Corvée 1er Cru has a comparatively rich and outgoing bouquet of more confit fruit compared to the Les Joyeuses. The medium-bodied palate features vibrant red berry fruit laced with orange zest. Nicely focused, with a saline, quite masculine finish. Give this two or three years in bottle to smooth out the edges.” 90-92 Neil Martin

“This too is aromatically quite floral in character while the cool essence of red and dark pinot fruit is trimmed in just enough wood to notice. The wood can also be found on the palate of the medium-bodied flavors that possess very good volume and sap that helps to buffer the moderately firm, dusty and lingering finale. (89-92)/2026+” Allen Meadows

“The 2020 Ladoix La Corvée 1er Cru has a slightly richer and more opulent bouquet compared to Les Joyeuses, black cherries intermixed with cassis and violet scents. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, quite saline, fine backbone here, though I find the Les Joyeuses has a touch more precision overall. Still, this is a very finely crafted Ladoix.” 91-93 Neil Martin

“A riper and more deeply pitched nose offers up liqueur-like aromas of various dark berries, soil tones and a mentholated top note. There is excellent intensity to the delicious medium-bodied flavors that are less refined but more powerful and muscular on the solidly structured built-to-age finish. At least some patience recommended. (89-92)/2030+” Allen Meadows
