Domaine De La Cadette, Bourgogne Vézelay ‘La Châtelaine’ 2009

Cadette Chatelaine 2009

Kermit Lynch Wine Merchants, Berkeley CA.

Lemon yellow.  Born in poverty, raised in steel, where the shallow and chalky subsoil imparts a deep mineral streak.  Mandarin flavors with admirable density; oyster-shell grip underneath.  Fleur de sel and shrimp-shell reduction at the end, granular and savory.  Like the best ’09s, the acidity is ripe and round and not prissy.  Now.
