Chateldon is a very unique water to savour.
After the initial salty sensation on the tip of the tongue, there is a substantial mouthfeel, though the water is very soft.
There is a pleasant, light presence of carbonation.
One of nature’s rare wonders, the naturally carbonated water is slowly filtered through the rocks of the Chateldonnaise mountains in France and emerges from the spring at a constant temperature of 6 degrees Celsius.
Chateldon has been continuously bottled since 1650.
King Louis XIV had it brought in barrels by mule to Versailles a distance of over 270 miles; today it retains the monarch’s sun emblem.
