Vallet Freres Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
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. The family’s wines have been imported to the UK for over 30 years and today, they’re distributed to top independent wine merchants and Michelin-starred restaurants across the country.
Charmes Chambertin means "charming" - how true of this elegant wine! Vallet Frères Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru wine is not filtered but checked by candlelight, then bottled directly from barrel by hand on a cask by cask basis. According to Louis “Burgundy must not be fruity – this is no good for great wine. Short cask ageing and early bottling are the denaturing of real Burgundy … only a long period in wood, followed by a long period in bottle will produce finesse, breed and elegance”. His wines are proof of this showing great longevity, complex secondary aromas all underpinned with tight tannins. Superb with roast duck or partridge.
