Natural wine

Country: France

Domaine de la Cadette is a producer of some unusual natural wines near Vezelay in the northern reaches of Burgundy. Look, in particular, for their food friendly and rare Melon de Bourgogne - made from one of the forgotten white grapes of Burgundy. This wine is a beautiful aperitif drink or teams very nicely with dishes such as light terrines or chicken parfait. We have tried this wine at Le Chateaubriand in Paris.
This domaine practices organic viticulture, uses no pesticides or herbicides in the vineyard and no nasty additives in the winemaking process. The grapes are fermented using only the naturally occurring yeasts.
They are also one of the few producers in Burgundy who use the red grape César in their wines.
