Domaine de la Cadette Domaine de la Cadet
At just 22 years old, he was selected as the head brewer of Camille Giroud, a prestigious negociant with a history of nearly 150 years, and is now in the limelight as an important producer of the next generation of Burgundy wine, David Croix Domaine. Croix was born in 1978 in Tours, Loire. Since his training at Comte Armand when he was enrolled in the brewery department of the University of Burgundy, his skills have been attracting attention. The first vintage of the domaine was 2005. Around 28,000 bottles will be produced, mainly Beaune grade 1 and Colton. The field is de facto biologic. The brewing philosophy is to create a wine that you can feel when you drink the esprit of which year and where the grapes were harvested. For that reason, we have a passion for thoroughly sorting the fruit, and then sorting the fruit twice in the cellar after the sorting in the field at the time of harvest. The new oak rate is limited to 20-30% even for grand crus. Little human intervention in the cellar, other than fermentation temperature control and sulfite addition, results in wines that are both warm, classically nuanced, and sophisticated.
