Biodynamic – family owned – 45 hectares – historic winemaking area
Located in the micro-region of Clos de Langres, an area that has witnessed the cultivation of vines since they were first planted by local monks in the 10th century, Domaine d’Ardhuy is one of our most recent discoveries.
Headed by Gabriel d’Ardhuy, the team produce stunning examples of Burgundy wines from across a wide range of terroirs, including the grand cru areas of Puligny-Montrachet and Gevrey-Chambertin.
A strong follower of the biodynamic movement, Gabriel allows the vines to express themselves in order to produce fruit that is as pure as possible, before conducting the fermentation process in traditional oak barrels, with regular stirring of the lees.
The aromas are reminiscent of the lean Puligny-Montrachet fruit, lemon zest and butter cream. The palate is warm and round with vibrant acidity. Green apple and butter cream comes to mind on the mid-palate as it finishes with a lovely hint of honey and toast.
