Tasting notes:

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.

About the wine:

Traditional practices have remained relatively unchanged both in the vineyard and the cellar  since Vallet Frères formation in 1864. Strict pruning practices ensure very low yields. The soils are a ploughed mixture of limestone and clay. All harvesting is done by hand.

After harvest, the grapes are not de-stemmed (Vallet Fréres, like Domaine Romanee-Conti, are one of a number of producers who still favour this technique).

Grapes are immediately pneumatically pressed (to avoid oxidation) and fermented in oak barrels with batonnage every day.

Bottling is undertaken after 15 months maturing. 

About the producer:

Vallet Frères was established in 1864. The Vallet family (also known as Bouree Pere et Fils) own holdings in Gevrey Chambertin, Beaune Epenottes (Premier Cru), Charmes-Chambertin (Grand Cru) and the entire single vineyard of Clos de la Justice.

The Vallet family are also negociants, sourcing the best grapes from growers in other areas with whom they have worked for many years. The winery represents the pinnacle of attention to detail, delicate grape selection and a passion for making superb wines. 

Food match:

A versatile wine that would match fish, poultry or cheese. Try with a traditional Burgundian dish such as pike dumplings in a sorrel sauce, or with baked Epoisse cheese.
