2007 Prince Florent de Merode Les Chaillots, AC Ladoix
Ladoix is a little appellation, click the link. Prince Florent de Merode died in 2008, and his vineyard holdings were sold off - but more interesting is the leasing of his three Corton Grand Crus to DRC. Very interesting indeed, but does this more humble bottle reflect its aristocratic owner?
Coarse, slightly confected fruit, which develops some mineral character. A simple wine, pleasant enough . . . just not good enough.
