France_Burgundy_Cote de Beaune_Ladoix-Serrigny

Ladoix is famous for being the most northerly appellation in the Cote de Beaune. There are some decent whites but the strength of Ladoix is red wines. There are flatter areas that are rugged and sold as Cote de Beaune-Villages. More complex and silkier wines are made in the two Grand Crus and
seven Premier Crus. These are located to the north. Four of the premier cru lie on the famous slope of Corton called the Montagne de Corton. There are also two Grand Cru vineyards (Corton and Corton-Charlemagne) which are shared with the neighboring appellations of Aloxe-Corton and Pernand-Vergelesses. 6 ha of Corton-Charlemagne and 22 ha of Le Corton are actually situated in Ladoix-Serrigny. Ladoix wines are always lovely and pure with rugged complexity when it comes to the 1er Crus and can age for up to 15-25 years in excellent vintages. They typically retail between $25 and $70.
