Origins

Created in 1970, there are just 94 ha of vineyards in Ladoix, ¾ of which produce red wine. The appellation features 11 Premier Cru vineyards which benefit from eastern or south-east/southern exposure with altitudes varying between 230 and 325 m. The soils at the upper part of the slope where Les Hautes Mourottes is located are pebbly, reddish, limestone based with a high proportion of marls and considerable flint-limestone fragments. Les Hautes Mourottes is located just a few metres from the famous Corton-Renardes vineyard. In old local dialect, Mourottes referred to walls which would indicate that the vineyard was once surrounded by walls.

Vineyard selection and management

The vines are 50 years old with low yields: 30 hl /ha.
