Château de Charodon and the winemaker Louis Vallet are the new hot stuff in the Burgundy, France, wine scene.
Louis Vallet has an incredible wine background. He has long worked at different estates and at Domaine Pierre Bourée, his family’s old domaine. He learned his trade from people like Pascal Marchand, a renowned wine grower, and then worked in Chile making Pinot Noir in the Bio-Bio region. Now, Vallet has started his own business buying grapes and making wine in Burgundy.
Château Charodon is a fine house in the Beaune plain and the centre of Louis Vallet's business activity.
