Created in 1980, Domaine des Valanges is located in Davayé. Michel and Jocelyne Paquet worked relentlessly to build this property from scratch. From the 2,5 hectares today, they now take care of a 12 hectares mainly located on the appellation Saint Véran. In 2015, their children, Camille, Mathieu and Jean-Baptiste, took over their parents’ estate. Camille manages both the viticulture and winemaking, while Mathieu and Jean- Baptiste are responsible for wine sales. They perpetuate the know-how of their parents with the same passion, sharing the same vision: offering great white Burgundy reflecting the terroir at affordable prices. On all parcel sun exposure is south / south-east based on clay limestone terroirs with an high proportion of limestone. The plots benefit from optimal sunshine. This terroir is wonderful for Chardonnay, producing very expressive, mineral, floral wines with a great fruit intensity.
A fine, subtle and open bouquet with notes of ripe fruits and floral tones. The palate is quite rich and round with excellent structure and balance. Pair with appetizers, grilled fish, white meats and cheeses. Enjoy now or lay down for 3 to six years.
In the vineyard, Famille Paquet is working with sustainable viticultural method, every thing is made to preserve their lands and reflect the typicity of their terroirs. Harvest is always manual, and grapes are transported in small boxes to preserve their integrity. Part of the must is fermented in stainless steel and part in barrel. Most of the wines are vinified in stainless steel vats. After a cold sedimentation of the juices, the must is fermented in vats with temperature control (18-22 degrees). Fermentation is carried during three to four weeks. Malolactic fermentation takes place after the primary fermentation, the wine then ages on lees and stirred (bâtonnage) for about 9 months, depending on the vintage.
