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 oxidative handling, an expert use of lees contact and no filtration.

The Macon-Chaintre really is the signature of the estate, plush yellow orchard fruits, a spray of salty citrus and lively acidity. Textural layers of tension on the fleshy frame are courtesy of elevage in 80% oak and the balance in tank.

A wine of power and longevity that loves to open in a decanter. Those who love Jurasic whites will see similarities in the salty sub-structure here and take to them with gusto.
