Tasting Notes

This classic white Burgundy has a savoury, biscuity nose with a restrained, balanced palate. Oak ageing has lent a creaminess to the nose and gives broader texture before a long finish.

Producer details

Founded in 1864 by Pierre Bourée, Vallet Frères is now in the hands of the fourth generation of the family, Bernard and Jean-Christophe Vallet. The family own holdings in Gevrey-Chambertin; the entire monopole vineyard of Clos de la Justice, Premier Cru Beaune Epenottes and Grand Cru Charmes-Chambertin. They are also négociants and source the best grapes from growers in other areas, with whom they have worked closely for decades. The Burgundies they produce are complex, fine and authentic examples of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The family’s wines have been imported to the UK for over 30 years.

In the vineyard

Regular plowing and minimal fertilisers as well as minimal pruning to promote vigous and reduce yield. Hand picking and transport in small containers.

In the winery

Chardonnay grapes sourced from Gevrey Chambertin and Auxey Duresses. Fermentation in foudre followed by transfer to 1 year old French barriques (Berthoumieu) for 12 months. During this time the barrels are rolled to stir up the lees - this happens 4 times a year after which the wine is left on its lees for a further 3 months. The wine is fined with bentonite prior to bottling but not filtered.
