Notes from the importer:
From 65-year-old vines; bottled a full two and a half years after the harvest; 80% aged in oak and 20% in tank): Since 2015 this wine is vinified without sulfur, Valette's Mâcon-Chaintré Vieilles Vignes responds well to oxygen—in fact, it's best decanted. I have followed this wine over several days where the fruit fans out and the latent minerality becomes more profound. You will notice that this is a blend of three vintages - a bit like Vega Sicilia Unico Reserva Especial - the reason for this is that in order to create the harmony, tension and balance they desire in this period of climate change, they have decided to take this approach, the results are quite incredible. As always this opens in the glass with aromas of citrus and orchard fruit with a lovely floral lift. The wine is medium to full-bodied and has a powerful presence yet is only moderate in alcohol and has lively acids, superb purity and a long, sapid finish. This is an excellent release of the Valette's Mâcon-Chaintré that exemplifies the last two decades of reflection and evolution at this estate. This wine will age effortlessly in a good cellar and provide many years of pleasure.
