A fairly recent estate, Domaine De La Cadette was developed by the Montanet family and their friends, who planted 12.5 hectares of vines between 1987 and 1997. Their hard work paid off, as they now have a range of high quality wines developed using natural techniques.
Les Saulniers is made entirely from Chardonnay.
The Les Saulniers vineyard is a beautiful parcel of land situated on an old road once used by salt smugglers, who extracted contraband salt from the water at the nearby “Fontaines Salées”. The vines are beautifully tended and show strength from their organic treatment.
‘La Saulniers’, spends six months in vats. The end result is a lively and fresh white that is wonderfully appealing for such an elegant wine. This wine is perfect for drinking now, but will definitely improve with time.
It has a liveliness and freshness that is very appealing for such an elegant wine. The finish is very long and interesting. It is one of the best Chardonnay wines from the northern area of Burgundy that we have tried. It has elegance, flavour, a beautiful acid backbone and lots of structure.
An amazing wine for the price.
This wine is from a certified producer.
