2020 "Galerne Vézelay" Chardonnay
One of our favorite white wines that inspired us to bring natural wines to Manila, this 'Galerne' by La Soeur Cadette is a powerful and elegant Chardonnay from the Montanet-Thoden family vineyard in the newly renowned Vézelay appellation in Burgundy, France.
Challenging the idea that natural wines must always be funky adult grape juice, this pale gold wine is full and intense with integrated and long-lingering notes of honey, butter, and rich and ripe stone fruits. Coming from gently pressed hand-harvested grapes that go through natural malolactic fermentation before maturing for 8 to 10 months on lees (yeasts), the wine is round and creamy and a superstar that would make any dinner celebratory. 13.5% abv.
Reminds us of: Honey. Butter. Cream. Ripe Stone Fruits. White Flowers. Mineral.
Quality Time: Best paired with fish, poultry and pork dishes - grilled, fried, or cream based. We're thinking Chicken Inasal, roast pork or carbonara.

La Soeur Cadette (Domaine de la Cadette) are amazing and incredibly aware winemakers based in Vezelay in Burgundy.
With a climate cooler than in Chablis but with greater sun exposure, and with a mountainous vineyard on granite, limestone, and fossilized marine deposits, La Soeur Cadette produces wines that balance generous fruit and deep mineral structure.
With 22 hectares of organic farming and a negoce activity since 2016, Montanet-Thoden is owned by Catherine Montanet and Tom Thoden and the wines are now made by Valentin who is showing that he has learned well from his father and is making wines of the same purity but with his own distinctive stamp.
These domaines practice organic viticulture, use no pesticides or herbicides in the vineyard and no additives in the winemaking process. The grapes are fermented using only the naturally occurring yeasts
