2020 Domaine Ardhuy Monopole Ladoix Clos des Chagnots
Domaine d'Ardhuy is a Burgundy house that quickly became one of the top 5 producers in the region. Very extensive choice of terroirs, and high quality from the base to the Cru's.
Gabriel Ardhuy helped with the 1947 harvest in Burgundy and there he met his future wife Eliane, daughter of a winegrower from Burgundy. They have seven daughters. The d'Ardhuy family has long owned the trading house Pierre André, headquartered at Château Corton-André. This will be sold in 2002, so that all attention can be paid to the own vineyards and the development of the own domain. The Ardhuy family owns more than 40 hectares of vineyards in magnificent plots and also owns a company in the Rhone. For both domains a subsidiary has been appointed to organize it. At the beginning of 2003, Carel Voorhuis, son of a lawyer from Maastricht who had previously bought a winery in the Jura, comes in as a 'régisseur'. And then things go fast: already in 2004, the Revue de Vins de France chose Ardhuy as number 3 of producers in the Côte de Beaune and as number 4 in the Côte de Nuits.
Chagnot is the diminutive of the Burgundian Châgne for the old French Chasne "Oak" and it is very common in Ladoix-Serrigny and especially in two neighboring towns: Les Chagnots and Clos des Chagnots, on the edge of the D 974 Dijon - Beaune crossing the village. The Ladoix Clos des Chagnots Pinot Noir vineyard is composed of old and young vines with an average age of 35 years. The soil consists of Clay-limestone soil: rubble and silt on stony soil locally called "chailles" (limestone), originating from the Buisson Valley, this allows good drainage of moisture, allowing the grapes to ripen faster and earlier.
The d'Ardhuy Monopole Ladoix Clos des Chagnots has a beautiful fresh light ruby red color with mainly notes of fresh red fruit in the nose such as red currant, currant, cherry supplemented with some earthy notes and some leather. In the mouth the wine is fresh, fresh, fruity and full of fine-grained tannins. A perfect beautiful red burgundy from the Ladoix, perfect to enjoy and delicious with a Margret de Canard.
