Vallet Freres Marsannay Blanc
Vallet Freres Marsannay Blanc - Marsannay is described as 'the Golden Gate' to the Côte de Nuits and this is a wonderful highly aromatic example from Vallet- Frères.
Creamy oak notes on the distinctive Vallet nose are overlaid with lemons and hints of cloves and vanilla bean paste. Surprisingly but pleasantly taught and savoury on the palate; the lemon zings through and the acidity is well judged.
Of course match with classic Burgundian chicken dishes, such as Poulet de Gaston Gerard (plump chicken in a mustard sauce), but this Marsannay can be matched to sushi when drunk young and the lemony notes would suit a grilled sea bass. If you decide to cellar it, then try with a regional cheese such as Epoisses.
