Vinification:

Maison Louis Latour has always been careful to select those wines vinified in a traditional manner, Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats, temperature controlled with complete malolactic fermentation

Ageing takes 8 to 10 months in stainless steel vats.  Cellaring Potential 2 - 3 years.


Winery information:

Lying in the north of the Mâconnais between Tournus and Mâcon, Viré-Clessé is one of Burgundy's newest appellations. It was formed to bring together the villages of Viré and Clessé which until 1999 bottled their wines as Mâcon-Clessé and Mâcon-Viré. The Chardonnay of Viré- Clessé is distinctly different from the appellations further to the south such as Pouilly-Fuissé and Saint-Véran.

The soil in the vineyards of Vire and Clesse  is of clay and limestone.

The average age of the vines are 25 years with an average yield of 50 hl/ha.

Harvested by machine.


Tasting Note:

Viré-Clessé 2014 reveals a yellow pale color with green hues and a floral nose with notes of acacia, honey and vanilla. The mouth is round with aromas of pear and mirabelle plum. Beautiful minerality on the finish!

Food Recommendation:

Serving temperature 10 - 12°

Grilled fish  - seafood  -  Comté cheese.
