Vallet Frères Marsannay Blanc (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 Marsannay Blanc wine is described as 'the Golden Gate' to the Côte de Nuits and this highly aromatic example is a wonderful addition to our list from Vallet- Frères. Highly aromatic. Creamy oak notes on the distinctive Vallet nose are overlaid with lemons and hints of cloves and vanilla bean paste. Surprisingly but pleasantly taught and savoury on the palate, the lemon zings through and the acidity is well judged. Of course, match with classic Burgundian chicken dishes, such as Poulet de Gaston Gerard (plump chicken in a mustard sauce), but this Marsannay can be matched to sushi when drunk young and the lemony notes would suit a grilled sea bass. If you decide to cellar it, then try with a regional cheese such as Epoisses.
