Voila...our benchmark for Red Burgundy
Ladoix 1er Cru La Micaude
La Micaude is the northernmost of the vineyards of the Cotes de Beaune.
But such geographical divisions can be arbitrary, or, in this case, expedient.
You see, the rock below La Micaude is actually the same rock as the Cotes de Nuits
And it's here, in the north of Ladoix, that that rock goes underground,
subsumed by the geological formations of the Cote de Beaune.
Here is a wine that can be delicate and powerful at the same time,
with pretty little red fruits that can age as well (and usually better) than concentrated extracted fruit bombs.
Racy and well-structured, 'La Micaude' is at the same time discreet with delicate black berry fruits.
Here's your chance to get some of the excellent (but very-small-harvest) vintages of 2019 and 2020 ... includes three bottles of each
