Tasting note

2008 Domaine Cachat-Ocquidant Ladoix Blanc

A mature white Burgundy by Domaine Cachat-Ocquidant. The cork in this half bottle is intact, it all looks good. But when you pour it, the colour is immediately noticeable: a deep orange, more whisky than white wine. The bouquet is nutty with butter and caramel. With more time in the glass, a hint of pear. But the tertiary notes have already taken over. On the palate, this impression is confirmed. The acidity is strongly restrained, freshness rather absent. Walnut, mushrooms, otherwise few impressions. No, the wine has its good time behind it. A rating above 80 is hardly possible for me, so no rating. NR.
