  • About

Ladoix, the appellation from the village of Ladoix-Serrigny, in the Côte de Beaune district of Burgundy’s Côte d’Or, producing about 70% red wines from Pinot Noir grapes, sometimes sold as Côte de Beaune-Villages (see beaune, côte de). White wines are growing in popularity, especially those grown towards the top of the slope. Unusually in Burgundy, some of the premiers crus are designated for red wine only (e.g. Les Joyeuses) or white wines only (e.g. Les Gréchons) while bizarrely a small number of premier cru vineyards located in Ladoix such as Les Moutottes are sold under the name Aloxe-Corton. Furthermore, 6 ha of Corton-Charlemagne and 22 ha (out of 160) of Le Corton, including part of Le Rognet and Les Vergennes, are actually sited in Ladoix (see aloxe-corton for more details).
