2016 Maison Valette VV Macon-Chaintre

$98.00

Region: Burgundy, FRA

Variety: Chardonnay

Organic farming

Based in Chaintre within the Pouilly-Fuisse appellation, Philippe is the third generation of Valette to craft wine of great precision, dimension and concentration through meticulous vineyard management and painstaking attention-to-detail in the cellar. In every second row they planted dense vegetation to protect the beneficial microorganisms that roam the vineyard. This practice also serves to create competition for the vines, causing them to burrow their roots deeper in search of minerals and nutrients, resulting in greater fruit concentration and complexity in the final wine. 

They employ both organic and biodynamic practices, adding little to no sulphur except where considered absolutely necessary. These wines can spend anywhere between two and six (or more!) years in barrel, only being released when given Philippe's scrupulous stamp of approval. These are layered, complex wines that make us stand to attention. To that end, don't judge them on the first sniff or sip as, like us, they take a little time to express themselves and appreciate your attention over a few hours.

'Opens with aromas of citrus and orchard fruit and a lovely floral lift. Superb purity and a long, sapid finish. This is an excellent vintage that exemplifies the last two decades of reflection and evolution at this estate. This wine will age effortlessly in a good cellar and provide many years of pleasure. At the price, it's a steal.' note from the importer, Andrew Guard
