The wines of Valette are unique, detailed and compelling. They have been farming in the Macon since the 50's and set up their own domaine in the late 70's always, with oxidaitive handling, an expert use of lees contact and no filtration.

The name means “And yet…”, a name to go along with the Vin de France classification on the label as a result of the Mâcon regulatory ‘tasting panel’ rejecting the wine as too atypical.

Layered, complex and powerful this is a textural masterclass from 60 year old vines and elevaged in old wood for 30 months. Incredibly rich, it is texturally rounded with wild orchard fruit aromas and flavours and exotic spice yet still retains a chiselled structure and brilliant natural acidity.

The wines of Valette are always of finesse and beauty, gastronomic powerhouses that can show another side of burgundy that excites seasoned drinkers.
