Vallet Frères Corton-Charlemagne 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.
Vallet Frères Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru wine has impressive structure and great length – a serious Burgundy. With a complex bouquet of chamomile and butterscotch, the finish is impressively oaked with good, clean length. This Grand Cru shows impressive structure and is without a doubt, a wine that will benefit from being put to one side for a few years to develop. Given the labour-intensive traditional methods used to produce this Corton-Charlemagne, a ying and yang approach to accompanying dishes should be adopted i.e. simply grilled lobster, snails in herb butter, or pike dumplings in a sorrel sauce.
