2013 Vire Clesse, Chanson Pere Et Fils, Burgundy, France
Pale gold colour. Very delicate floral fragrances mixed with fern and underlined by subtle minerality. Well-structured and well-balanced. Very pure aromas. Refreshing finish.
In the heart of the Mâcon winegrowing region, South of Burgundy, the two villages Viré and Clessé form a unique “terroir” on slopes facing South-East. The vineyards here have soils rich in clay, chalk and marl. In Viré, the soil is chalky with large layers of clay. In Clessé , the soil structure is slightly different with a combination of chalk and clay mixed with liasic marls combined with oysterfossils which convey to the wine a specific minerality. This is one of the best white wines of the region combining suppleness and minerality.
A fine, dry apéritif, great with light seafood and raw vegetable hors d’oeuvres.
