The wines of Macon are often maligned for their simplicity and breadth - well, that's not the case with the wines of Domaine Valette.
Baptiste and Philippe Valette are following in the footsteps of their father, Gerrard, producing exceptional wines from their family holdings in Mâcon-Chaintré. These wines, grown without pesticides and made without additions, have elevated themselves above the pack in their home region.
The combination of enforced lower yields and old vines (40-years-old) sees this Chardonnay show much more power and intensity than you might expect from Macon. It's plush, devastatingly delicious in texture, full of weight and, importantly, fresh to drink. If you are interested in the underground artisan movement in this region, this wine would be a very god place to start.
Clos de Monsieur Noly is an organic wine made from aged vines. This exceptional cuvée is aged on lees for up to 84 months! The result is a top class wine with a complex range of fabulous aromas. The nose presents intenses aromas of cooked apple, spices and honey. On the palate the wine reveals itself to be powerful with volume, density and many complex aromas (spices, apples, pears, nuts), and both saline and mineral notes. The finish has wonderful length.
