Everything you want in a mature Village Burgundy.
Bernard Vallet is regarded by many as one of the best wine makers in the village of Gevrey Chambertin. His red wines are traditionally made (the house of Vallet Frères have been making wines in this style since 1864) and capture the true meaning of the expression ‘terroir’.
This stunning example of Pinot Noir displays characters of cherry alongside rustic notes that express the terroir. An inviting ‘drink me now’ nose which is gently spicy, lightly perfumed, layered tones that are a little bit earthy and very ‘traditional’. The palate has delicate flavours that are quite long with different levels of flavour and complexity. Still quite young, this is a very lovely wine with nice warmth, charm and structure.
