La Cadette Vézelay Les Saulniers Chardonnay 2019
La Cadette is Jean and Catherine Montanet with their son Valentin, who makes the wine. They grow some organic fruit as well as buying from their friends and neighbours. Their wines are always pure and focused, with no additives.
Les Saulniers is made of chardonnay from the north of Burgundy, near an old salt lake. This is long and focused, the flavour is deep and complex, but it is very much alive, jumping out of the glass, like Teen Age Riot, it builds and crescendos with elegance and fervour.
