Chateau La Caderie 2019 Blanc
With clear, green-gold hues, the colour shows remarkable youthfulness. Subtle and delicate nose, in the aromas of white flowers the dash(30%) of Muscadelle, exotic fruits (mango) and quince from the 70% Semillon. The palate is cracky(from fresh Semillon) still well-rounded and fat( from the ripeness). Finale is persistent with a beautiful freshness. There is a heavenly lightness to it.
Key practice features of this wine are organic farming and hence the quality, small vineyard two hectares only, old vines of over 28 years old, low yield of less than 40 L/h, manual sorting, 30% new oak, sur lie for three months hence the weight, cold fermentation hence the freshness. The soils are argilo-rochy and argilo-muddy benefit from the sunlights and on high land(70M above ground). So this is not another Bordeaux white- never the tired Bordeaux whites- it is a pretty 2019.
