Yannick Cadiou is a very experienced man. He’s been at Domaine Laroche, one of the most consistent producers in Chablis, up until very recently. He was their Vineyard manager but arrived in Chablis back in 1984. His family is from the Loire.
He now has 2 hectares of vines, so very little, with the 2018 being is first vintage. Everything is organically farmed. The wines, just like the man, are modest in appearance: lower alcohol and no cru level vineyards. But once tasted, they are wines full of life, with a mouth filling texture. Glorious examples of their region, made by someone who cares about the ground they are made on. A very comforting discovery and a great reminder of what made Chablis so popular in the first place.
PS: his Chablis recently earned 95pts and a Decanter Gold Medal. We list his level up, a parcel selection of the even better grapes. Just saying!
