Viré Clessé, Mâconnais

Domaine Michel et Fils

Tradition Viré-Clessé Chardonnay 2018

Well balanced though more oak on the nose than I expected. Fruit still showed magnificently. Worth the mid-$20 price point. — 15 days ago

Viré-Clessé Chardonnay 2017

Domaine Sophie Cinier Viré-Clessé 2017: Clean. Bright. Expressive. Honeysuckle & white flowers on the nose and citrus fruits & minerals on the palate. A well balanced yet complex Chardonnay wine with nice acidity and texture at the finish. All in all, this white Burgundy wine is a crowd-pleaser due to its focused layers of flavors and its overall elegance & finesse. Cheers🍷 — 2 months ago

This has evolved quite a bit since my last bottle. Now arrived at a deep straw yellow golden color. On the nose caramelized butter popcorn with a distinct smell of botyris mixed with mineral slate.

The acidic attack and yellow fruits on the palate reminds me of German riesling. Citrus fruits and honeycomb wrapped in fatty roundness. Full and round but still keeping freshness, precision and balance. The citric acidity keeps on lingering during the long finish. This will age well for a couple of years, too bad it is my last bottle.
