Vallet Frères Le 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 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.
Chambertin is the 'King' of the red wines of Burgundy. The grapes come into the winery with stalks, the first 10 cm of each barrel is filled with grapes which are crushed by foot, the barrel is then topped up with whole bunches and fermentation starts naturally after 2-3 days.
Vallet Frères Le Chambertin Grand Cru wine is very light coloured with orange tinge. A nice nose of earthy cherry with some floral and light Asian spice notes. Medium light fruit on palate, good balance and nice finesse. All wines of Gevrey Chambertin require elaborate tasting food: mutton, beef, game and all sorts of cheeses.
