Producer

Domaine de la Cadette

A relatively new domaine for Burgundy, Jean and Catherine founded their own estate in 1999, though Jean had been making while running the local cooperative in Vezelay since 1990. A Burgundian producer that makes wine in Beaujolais is not all that unusual, especially considering the price of land in the Burgundy. Domaine de la Cadette makes chardonnay, melon de Bourgogne, and pinot noir in addition to Gamay. Their Julienas comes from 45-year-old Gamay vines planted on granite. Winemaking is restrained but clean, with fermentation happening in stainless steel followed by elevage in 228L neutral barrels. Soft and easy drinking, these wines are always bright and fresh.

Region/Subregion

France

It would be difficult to overstate the importance of France to the wine world. With a rich history of wine production across virtually all of France over the last thousand years many of the grape species that are known for producing benchmark wines from all over the world had their beginnings in France. Over centuries vignerons refined their focus on what grapes thrived and transmitted a sense of place.
