Tasting with Catharina Sadde of Les Horées


On a hot summer night there was an intense aligoté tasting in Beaune.

Sunday in Beaune is tough for eating and drinking. But all is possible at The Publican. Fresh from a book event, I walked in thirsty and found my dates, Matt McClune at a high top, waiting along with a few winemaking friends. There were four bottles in socks standing upright. A blind aligoté tasting was about to commence, among them were some favorite producers from the difficult and low-yielding 2021 vintage. In the end, there was one clear winner. Les Horées, Catharina Sadde.
