Very light colored with an orange tinge. Mature and drinking perfectly now with an earthy nose, candied cherry and raspberry fruit with some floral and light spice notes and touches of savoury, wet leaf. A wine with great balance and finesse.

Producer Description

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.
