Ladoix 2005, Jean-Baptiste Bejot
Ladoix is one of the unsung villages of the Cote d'Or. The village itself isn't much to speak of and it lacks the grands crus appellations that would put it on the map. Yet it is one of the few villages which makes equally good red and white wines. This Ladoix blanc "Bois de Grechons" has a convincingly full straw colour, a nose of ripe lemon, and cantaloupe melon that becomes more toasty, buttery with a hint of white pepper. On the palate ripe, fairly thick and mouth-filling. A pleasing wine and suitably bourgeois but not classy. Nevertheless Tintin's pup Milou is a fan.
