  • Domaine de la Cadette | Our Wines | Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
    granite massif of the Morvan has uplifted a marl and limestone strata revealing fossilized marine deposits Though Vézelay is a geographic appendage of Chablis the soils are not exactly the same The climate here is cooler too Instead of the Kimmerdigian soils the clays here range from blue and gray to red sometimes with no clay at all but just shallow limestone In this cooler climate their vines enjoy great sun exposure lending a balance between generous fruit and deep mineral structure That the wines from Vézelay have gone largely unnoticed until recently may certainly be attributed to an underwhelming production of forgettable wines however Domaine de la Cadette stands proudly as a beacon of change representing the most sincere expression of their terroirs with grace and integrity Though they are best known for their Bourgogne Vézelay a Chardonnay their Bourgogne Rouge and their Melon de Bourgogne are also equally remarkable Technical Information Wine Blend Vine Age Soil Type Vineyard Area Bourgogne Chardonnay Chardonnay 18 30 years Clay Limestone 13 5 ha total Bourgogne Rouge Champs Cadet Pinot Noir 22 years Clay Limestone 13 5 ha total Bourgogne Rouge Ermitage 85 Pinot Noir 15 César 25 years Limestone White Marl 54 ha Bourgogne Vézelay La Châtelaine Chardonnay 25 years Clay Limestone 13 5 ha total Melon Melon de Bourgogne 25 30 years Clay Limestone 13 5 ha total ha hectares one hectare equals roughly two and a half acres VITICULTURE VINIFICATION All grapes are harvested by hand and undergo natural fermentation Melon Aged for 5 months in stainless steel before bottling Bourgogne Chardonnay Aged for 5 months in stainless steel before bottling Bourgogne Vézelay La Châtelaine Aged for 7 to 10 months in stainless steel before bottling Bourgogne Rouge Champs Cadet Whole cluster fermentation for 1 3 of fruit remaining
