Domaine Bernard Vallette

WHO WE ARE

Domaine Bernard Vallette, comprised of 6.5 ha of vineyards, is situated in the village of Lachassagne in the Beaujolais wine region between Lyon and Macon.  Historically part of Burgundy. the vineyards were acquired by Bernard Vallette’s grandparents 150 years ago from the Marquis de La Guiche.

There is no more committed and passionate practitioner of biodynamie than Bernard Vallette. He is demonstrably attuned to the holistic rhythms of the universe, as evidenced by his business card that portrtays representations of the seven shakras as well as a graceful spiral form evocative of the golden ration.

Vallette’s Beaujolais, fancifully called Quatre Saisons, is so resolutely non-intervnetionist that it easily qualifies for the sobriquet “natural”. Similarly, the Domaine’s sparking rosé wine has been christened Née Bulleuse, which translates as “born bubbling.” But Née Bulleuse is also a word play, since the French word nébuleuse (pronounced in the same manner) evokes at once the clouds in the Earth’s sky as well as the interstellar clouds that give birth to stars.
