Tasting Notes

A beautiful and complex wine, that packs a big punch above it's appellation. Fine bright golden in colour with aromas of fresh pear, apple and caramel. The palate weight is wonderful with a smooth minerality leading to rich and complex flavours of baked apples and custard, a hint of hazelnuts and honey followed by lemony acidity to lift the finish. Lovely length.

Producer details

This winery represents everything that we are proud to be associated with; attention to detail, delicate selection of the best grapes and above all a passion for making superb wines. Well deserved French wine-maker of the year 2012.

In the vineyard

Traditional practices have remained relatively unchanged both in the vineyard and cellar since Vallet-Freres formation in 1864. Very low yeilds are controlled by strict pruning practices. Limestone / clay soils are ploughed, and the grapes are hand harvested.

In the winery

Traditional practices are employed - rigorous grape selection and no destemming (Vallet, like Domaine de la Romanee-Conti are just one of a number of producers who still favour this technique). Grapes undergo immediate pneumatic pressing (to avoid oxidization) and fermentation in oak barrels with "batonnage" every day. The wine is bottled after 15 months.

Food Recommendations

A lovely river fish with a rich sorrel sauce or the local Epoisses cheese.
