ADD

Valentin refers to this wine as “typique” Vézelay. Translating that word as “typical” doesn’t quite do typique justice. Essentially, the concept refers to a wine that, based on the history and legacy of a region’s terroir and winemaking, shows the best that style has to offer. Perhaps “classic” is what we’d say in English.

The Galerne is typique because it is a blend of many parcels from all across the Vézelay appellation. If you visit Valentin, he’ll give you a tour of the hillside town of Vézelay and the abbey that marks the high point of the hill. From there you can see the expanse of Vézelay, and he’ll point out his different parcels—each one unique, from east to west, with varying elevations and exposures. The result is a fine and balanced Chardonnay, expressing the right amount of fruit, crisp acidity, and limestone minerality to remind you precisely where this wine is from. –Clark Z. Terry
