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.
