Vire-Clesse is a rather young appellation, defined in 1998, in
replacement of the Macon-Viré and Macon-Clessé appellations.
Viré and Clessé are two villages of the south of Burgundy, near
Macon, with a particular terroir. Here we have marl and limestone
soils, and we can also find Cray, a type of limestone soil patched
with white rocks, especially good for the Chardonnay.
Manual harvest with a strict sorting of the grapes.
Fermentation in stainless steel tanks, to bring out the freshness of
Pale gold in colour, very brilliant and clear, with green hints.
Powerful nose of acacias, hawthorns, white peach and citrus fruits.
Fresh and lively, this wine has a good acidity and is well-balanced.
Perfect as an aperitif, this wine also goes well on any fish and all
seafood meals; it can also be paired with white meats in sauce and
Wine to be served at 12°C.
