Tasting Notes

Meursault lies between the villages of Volnay and Puligny-Montrachet and produces some of the world's greatest white wines. This has a wonderful creaminess on the nose and the palate is well-rounded, poised and elegant with a classic balance between richness and acidity and complex savoury character. This flavoursome wine is already delicious but will benefit from some more time in bottle.

Producer details

This winery, owned by the Vallet family, represents everything that we are proud to be associated with; attention to detail, careful selection of the best grapes and above all a passion for making superb wines. Three generations of the family are involved - Louis Vallet (who is Pierre Bouree's nephew), his sons Bernard and Jean-Christophe and grandson Louis Henry. All Pierre Bouree wines are vinified in their cuverie in Chambolle Musigny and then matured in their cellars at Gevrey Chambertin.

In the vineyard

Low vine density and extremely strict pruning practices (7 buds to a cane) to maintain low yields are employed at Vallet Frères. Traditional methods are also adopted in the vineyards - in the last 50 years only manure has been used on the mainly limestone soil and harvesting is by hand in order to select the best grapes.

In the winery

Grapes are selected from vines of a minimum 15 years of age; after pressing the juice is decanted then fermented in open wooden casks using only natural yeasts and no temperature control. The white wines are left on their lees for an extended period and put into French oak barrels, where they mature for a minimum of two years with racking off two or three times a year (to gently remove natural deposits).

Food Recommendations

Perfect with poussin and guinea fowl or lobster thermidor.


Bernard and his brother Jean-Christophe Vallet were awarded French Wine Makers of the year 2012!
