MAISON VALETTE, VIRE CLESSE "ET POURTANT", 6 Bottle Case, 75cl

Slightly different to some of its siblings; more butter, oak, candied fruit, vanilla. Good acidity, and medium weight. Lovely wine.

With an average age of 65 years, planted on silty-clay soils. Harvest is manual, the grapes picked at perfect maturity during a descending moon into five kilo crates. Once at the winery they are whole-bunch pressed, whereupon the juice flows directly by gravity into casks with the lees and ferments with native yeasts. Elevage is 26-months months on fine lees, 80% in used oak and 20% in tank. The wine is not filtered or fined and no sulphur is added.



A few must haves
