On the southern border of the Côte de Nuits, the small, picturesque mansion of the Domaine d’Ardhuy lies at the end of a fine driveway, flanked by the vines, off the main N74 road. The ‘monopole’ walled vineyard Clos des Langres is right by the property, with the appellation Côte de Nuits Villages, and the other side of the wall is Côte de Beaune. In all, this family domaine owns 42ha of vineyards in both the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune including Grands Crus in both Vougeot and Corton. For years the domaine was associated with the négociant Reine Pedauque, but since 2003 it has been on its own with the young oenologist Carel Voorhuis joining the family to make the wines. It has received some excellent reviews for its reds in particular. As well as the shop being open daily, the domaine offers a programme of visits for groups, small and large, and can arrange meals. The family estate also own Domaine La Cabotte in the southern Rhône Valley.
Useful information: Shop open every day 10.00-18.00. You may have to pay to taste the wines. Groups are welcomed by appointment up to 60 (or 40 for a meal). Contact for price details depending on which wines you wish to taste. English spoken.
