Viré-Clessé 2006

Grape Variety : Chardonnay

Soil : Clay and limestone

Site : In the heart of the Mâcon wine growing region, South of Burgundy. The two villages Viré and Clessé form a unique "terroir" on slopes facing South-East. This is one of the best white wines of the region combining suppleness and minerality.

The Vintage 2006 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. However, the sun appeared at the end of August and continued throughout September. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced beautiful white wines with fantastic acidity.

Tasting : Pale gold colour. Very delicate floral fragrances mixed with fern underlined by subtle minerality. Very fresh, well-structured and well-balanced. Very pure aromas. Refreshing and straightforward finish.

Food pairing : A fine, dry apéritif, great with light seafood and raw vegetable hors d'oeuvres.
