2018 Philippe Pacalet Ladoix, Burgundy, FRANCE. 750ml
There are a lot of winemakers people like to call “legendary", Philippe Pacalet has become one such winemaker, but his fame was earned not only for his skills in the cellar. It is because he is one of the strongest living links to two of the most seminal figures in artisanal French winemaking: Jules Chauvet, and Marcel Lapierre.
100% whole bunch. Bottled. Second vintage only.
Mid cherry red. Wonderfully inviting dark-red fruit, with the perfume of Chambolle and the more savoury side of Gevrey and a light stone-dusty note that is very attractive. Firm, upright tannic structure with lovely open fruit on the mid palate. Refined, youthful and delicious on the mid palate. (JH) 16.5/20
