A perfectly balanced wine with layers of flavour, blissful mouthfeel, lovely length, complexity and freshness.

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

A beautiful and complex wine, that packs a big punch above its 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.

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.
