Type: White Wine
Philippe Valette is known as one of the godfathers of natural winemaking, especially in the Mâcon. He is widely respected for his knowledge of vine biology and his wines are featured on many of the great wine lists of France.
Organic/Biodynamic farming. Mâcon-Chaintré Vieilles Vignes is made from 65-year-old vines, and was bottled for a full two and a half years after harvest; 80% aged in oak and 20% in tank.
The result is a bright, light white-gold wine with aromas of ripe apple, hazelnuts and minerals, with a saline lift. Bracing acidity and a lovely texture.
