Philippe Valette

Domaine Valette, Burgundy

That's a three-generation business that Philippe Valette took over almost 20 years ago. The 15-hectare estate, farmed organically for a long time, is located between Chaintré and Vinzelles. 

What makes Domaine Valette wines particular is the long ageing period they go through before bottling. Wines age for up to 72 months on lees in casks. The domaine produces very complex, well-balanced and striking wines.

"Our non-interventionist-attitude allows the wines to fully express their outstanding terroir. Encouraging the development of micro-organisms in the soils as they do helps the vines remain healthy and free." - Philippe Valette
