Tasting Notes

Producer Christophe Hallereau wasn't interested in being in the wine business until he inherited his family vineyards. Still maintaining his day job, he has become a weekend warrior winemaker maintaining the property and the cellar library. With 8 Ha in the village of Vallet, he now runs the local association of growers. All wines are fermented in concrete with native yeasts and minimal additions of SO2. Subsoils in the region are igneous with granite, gneiss, and mica. Vallet is a pending cru appellation and is known for its clay based soils. The wines are racy and mineral driven. At a recent staff seminar, we tasted wines going back to the mid-80s. The wines maintained freshness and mineral character proving these wines have the ability to age.

    Such an expressive wine is a triumph for the minimal intervention movement. I was immediately struck by the gorgeous citrus tone on the nose. That character continued on the palate with the addition of green apple and a slightly creamy texture. The wine remains lithe and refreshing through the finish, where you get a definite sense of the lees it sits on in tank. The acid here is perfect - energetic but not overbearing - and along with the impressive mineral backbone, makes this wine a dream with oysters.
