Domaine d’ Ardhuy Burgundy Tasting – Frederic Brouca of Hexagon Wines presented an exclusive tasting of Domaine d’Ardhuy wines - the first ever tasting of Domaine d'Ardhuy in Canada.
In Feb 2005, Clive Coates said, “…Quality has been transformed”.
In Jan 2006, Allen Meadows said: “Under the now capable direction of the young régisseur (estate manager) Carel Voorhuis, this big old line producer of frankly mediocre wines has decided to get serious about quality. Blessed with superb holdings spread over 42 ha in 35 different crus spread from Puligny to Gevrey, this domaine has the wherewithal to challenge some of Burgundy’s best. A new address to watch for.”
Two sit down tutored tastings were offered to our members, where we sampled the following wines from the 2004 Vintage:
Puligny Montrachet “Le Trezin” (Burghound 90 points)
Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru (BH92)
Côte de Nuits “Clos des Langres” (BH88)
Aloxe Corton “Les Chaillots” 1er Cru (BH88)
Ladoix “Basses Mourottes 1er Cru (BH89)
Corton “Hautes Mourottes Grand Cru (BH92)
Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru (BH93)
Outstanding wines and an excellent presentation at this jam packed event. Big thanks to Frederic for hosting this event for our members!
