Maison Valette Et Pourtant (Vire-Clessé) 2016
'(from 60-year-old vines; aged for 30 months in older barrels): the soils here are more 'Calcaire' (they contain more limestone) The nose is again incredibly attractive and bursts with lemon confit, apple, peach, pear and hazelnuts, the impression is rich and powerful. Lovely concentration in the mouth but with the telltale freshness and lively acidity that keeps you wanting more, this is delicious. A very powerful and intense wine - it oscillates intensity - it is one to keep!'
