From: Burgundy, France
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Domaine Parent, located in Pommard, in the heart of Côte d’Or, is today run by Anne Parent and her sister Catherine Fages-Parent, representing the 12th generation, and perpetuating a family tradition dating back to the 17th century.
In 1787, Etienne Parent had friendly and professional connections with Thomas Jefferson who was to become the 3rd President of the United States. He then became a forerunner of Burgundy wine exportations across the Atlantic.
At the beginning of 19th century, Claude Parent left Volnay, the family cradle, to settle in Pommard and to build Domaine Parent in 1803.
In 1947, Jacques Parent, then 19 years old, began working with his father Maxime. He then took over the management of the Domaine in 1953, and triggered an innovative impetus. Indeed, Domaine Parent was one of the first estates of Côte d’Or which sold all its production in bottles, in France on the best tables of French gastronomy, and overseas as well.
Jacques Parent’s will to work and ensure the continued existence of this family property allowed him to pass on the family estate calmly to his two daughters Anne and Catherine in 1998.
Tasting Notes: Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Ladoix 1er Cru la Corvée Rouge has a rounded nose with pretty cranberry and strawberry fruit that is nicely defined. The palate is crisp on the entry, the 25% new French oak neatly embroidered with a detailed, lightly peppered finish. Give it 12 months once in bottle and you will have yourself a perfectly fine Ladoix.
