Valéry is a Pinot and Sauvignon master who represents the third generation of his family’s wine growing. He’s known for extracting amazing depth and delicacy out of his small vineyards in Reuilly & Quincy.
He first grew up among the vines of Reuilly but traversed the world as a very young man, cutting his teeth in Oregon, Bordeaux, and Burgundy at Vincent Girardin. All of this by the age of 25, when he started his own small estate back in his home near Reuilly.
His grandad must have been some kind of visionary as he was the first to plant Pinot Noir in the limestone laden vineyards of Reuilly. That limestone is important, as it’s not just sunny days that makes Pinot Noir great. Limestone, like the kind we find all over Burgundy, lends freshness and tension to Pinot that make it great with food and even better with air. When it really sings, it gives that generous fruit a real sense of crunch!
This is the flagship Pinot from Valery that he offered up to us at an unbeatable price.
