Your $10 Recession Wine of the Week: Domaine de la Cadette Bourgogne 2005
This bottle seemed like a potential find. A white Burgundy from importer Kermit Lynch for only $11! Sure, it's only a Appellation Bourgogne Controlee, but still.
The Chardonnay has a grassy, herbal nose. The wine inside is has good acidity and is light in the mouth. The flavor profile is limited, grass, grape, lime and grapefruit. But it's in an Old World Burgundy style. It's not much, but for the price, it's a decent Burgundy table wine. I'd still recommend it.
