CHANSON PERE & FILS - Vire-Clesse 2006Fine French Burgundy Wine
Pale gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with exotic notes enhanced by a delicate minerality. Very fresh, well-structured and well-balanced. Beautiful aromatic combination. Harmonious aftertaste.
A fine, dry apéritif, great with light seafood and clean vegetable-driven hors d'oeuvres.
Soil: Clay and limestone.
Site: In the heart of the Macon winegrowing region, South of Burgundy. The two villages Viré and Clessé form a unique 'terroir' on slopes facing southeast.
This is one of the best white wines of the region combining suppleness and minerality.
The vintage 2005: Exceptional after a superb growing season a cold winter, rainy spring followed by hot and dry summer.
Grapes picked at optimum ripeness and in perfect health, hence a minimum sorting was required.
