ASTING NOTES

We call Domine Valeta “Sunny Slope” our “delicate, fragrant Burgundian wine.”

The following notes are from a 30-year professional wine taster and wine letter publisher Mike Lynch: “The Sunny Slope vineyard may share the same vine spacing, clones, rootstocks, farming, and winemaking techniques as with the other properties, but its wines are remarkably different. “Sunny Slope” is the  most perfumed of the Clos de la Tech wines.”

Domaine Valeta tasting notes from Ron Wiegand: “Excellent Quality (****). Very fine and moderately complex (ripe plum, black cherry, red licorice, vanilla, oak). It has a supple and moderately intense flavor, with excellent balance, and a long,  lightly tannic finish.” Decant an hour before drinking. Best after 2022.
