Philippe Pacalet Ladoix Rouge
- Burgundy, France
We were expecting great things of Philippe from 2018 vintage and he did not disappoint. The harvest began with his Moulin A Vent on 28th August (the “Latour of Beaujolais”) and finished two weeks after. Philippe says the sunny weather gave him “gourmandise” wines with density, like 1990 but with more structure. As usual the reds are vinified 100% whole bunch and with minimal interventions throughout the elevage. Muscular as always and viscous with the fleshy fruit of the vintage, they are nevertheless fresh and well defined with characteristic vitality. Cult status can be an overused description but is rightly-applied to the wines of Pacalet, which now have a fanatical global following.
Planted on red clay soils, the nose explodes from the glass with cacao and polish and black forest gateaux. The cherries continue on the palate in a great juicy, crunchy wave. This is powerful, succulent, generous, and a real swashbuckler. Classic Pacalet. Tom, Wine Guru
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 if quite light on the mid palate.
