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 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.

The Le Clos des Langres comes from grapes from a single vineyard, which lies on the border of the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits. The vineyard is located on top of a hill, with steep slopes on all sides. This ensures good drainage and sufficient sun and ventilation, allowing the grapes to ripen well and evenly. The age of the vines varies from 25 to 65 years, each with their own contribution to the complexity and quality of the wine.

The Côte de Nuits Villages Le Clos des Langres has an inviting, complex nose with intense red fruit (ripe cherries) and black fruit (blueberries), spicy notes, spices and nicely integrated wood. Powerful and round in taste with fine acidity, firm, well-packed tannins and a very long finish in which the lively fruit aromas live on.

FACT: The Clos des Langres belonged to the chapter of Langres Cathedral from the 11th century and the wines produced have enjoyed an excellent reputation ever since. Doctor Lavalle, in his 1855 work The History and Statistics of the Great Wines of the Côte d'Or, gave the vineyard a top position in its classification, writing: "The wines have body and color (...) and can be compared with the best wines from more prestigious villages”.
