Ladoix 1er Cru "Le Bois Roussot" 2007, Capitain-Gagnerot
A second Ladoix pinot tasted at the domaine with the genial M. Capitain (retired). Framboise, blood orange, basil or chives (fawlty?), appealing soft strawberry, produces an "under the duvet" sensation of softness. Excellent fruits: berries, red currants, fresh orange finish. Surprisingly long with some Dim Weasel muscle at the end. This wine could divide blind-tasters. Is it overly fruit-driven and simple? Or will it complexify by 2011? Too enjoyable when young? If you believe fruit quality is the basis for all vinous success then this can not be laughed at. But don't mention the war.
