2021 Michel Mallard Ladoix Clos Royer rouge

$49.00

Michel explains this one as friendly and easy, accessible with its generous roundness of texture, with fruit, savory, spice and florals offering a full and open knit experience. For your everyday yum yum value hound purposes, this is a winner.

“A much more deeply pitched nose features notes of plum, pungent earth and soft violet scents. There is a velvety, even suave texture to the caressing and voluminous medium weight flavors that possess a mouth coating finish. This too should drink well after only a year or two of bottle age if that’s your preference. (88-90)/2019+” Allan Meadows

Description

I didn’t get to taste this in bottle, but it sounds like a terrific example of Ladoix’s balance of fruit, earthiness, structure, and minerality, at a tariff that is pretty damn good on the world stage….

“The 2019 Ladoix Le Clos Royer Rouge has a fragrant blackberry and raspberry bouquet, well defined and focused, touches of crushed stone permeating the fruit. The palate is medium bodied with a slightly chalky texture, with a fine bead of acidity and a slightly briny finish. Classy, but quite serious.” 90-92 Neil Martin

“The 2021 Ladoix Le Clos Royer Rouge opens in the glass with aromas of red berries, cherries and sweet spices. Medium to full-bodied, ample, fleshy and seamless, it’s a charming, gourmand red from this underrated appellation.” 89-91 William Kelley

“A much more deeply pitched nose presents notes of plum, dark cherry, forest floor and soft earth. There is once again fine mid-palate density to the vibrant and relatively powerful flavors that terminate in a dusty and focused if not really austere finale that could also use better depth. (88-91)/2028+” Allen Meadows
