About the wine
Welcome to Ludes and put on your boots! We're off to a plot of land that is shaped like Texas. Le Haut Belai parcel takes its name from the bleating of the sheep that once grazed there. Its wine combines fruitiness (Pinot noir) with chalky notes (Chardonnay) in a subtle oak universe.--------- Arnaud Gounel, Wine-rider
Fine bubbles dance in a satiny, pale-yellow hue with greenish yellow highlights. The flint is immediately expressed on nose, without nuance, in a beautiful and biscuity minerality (grilled mango, red apple, honeysuckle, pear, lemon, blackcurrant, bavarian). The almond is presented here in all its forms, from the small financier to the flaked almond followed by toasted, woody, brioche notes without opulence. This is a wine you can enjoy and travel through, a wine that will amaze you, an ideal model from the wine-rider who skates down his plot. On palate he attack is short and gradually rises in the mouth to take on its fullness. Rich, fresh, creamy, we find the lemon, the pomelo all in greediness. The fruit and minerality merge with the oak showcasing the purity of the terroir. This makes to appreciate the character and the greediness of the which are expressed with precision, purity and great sapidity. The full and harmonious finish soars on the palate, for a definite gastronomic pleasure.
