The hand-picked harvest goes through a short prefermentary maceration before being vinified. For the duration of the 15-18 day vatting period, the wine is kept at low temperature.
It is then matured in oak barrels for 14 to 16 months, in nineteenth century vaulted cellars which provide ideal conditions for raising wines. The proportion of new oak, which is susceptible to variations according to the vintage, represents in general one third of the cuvée.
The barrels come from high-quality barrel makers and have been rigorously selected for their fine grain and light toast.

The nose opens up with very ripe strawberry scents and light animal notes. There is a fine, supple attack on the palate which reintroduces the very ripe fruit aromas sensed on the nose. The finish is long. This Ladoix 2007 is a delicate, pleasant and very fruity wine.
