Chardonnay, Vire Clesse, Les Heritiers du Comte Lafon 2011 - Organic


Vire-Clessé 2011 on Vivino

Part of the Maconnais in Burgundy, Vire-Clesse is a wonderful appellation on par with Pouilly Fuisse. Typical of the southern style of Burgundy, this is rich and full of voluptuous texture. 

Sunny and golden, this wine will bring a smile to your face as it reminds you of holidays in the sun!

This is rich and sexy and you can feel the sun on those grape skins. It is really well balanced, however, and the oak doesn't overpower it. This is for those who love their Chardonnay to be big and bold and full of flavour. 

Perfect to drink now or to hold for several more years yet...
