  • Domaine Gondard Perrin Vire-Clesse Vieilles Vignes 2012


    I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in London's Kensignton [] for £14.50. Vire-Clesse is an appellation created in 1999 [although viticulture has been going on here for centuries ] for white wines made mainly of the chardonnay grape from 4 communes around the villages of Vire and Clesse in the northern part of the Maconn...

  • Lafon Vire-Clesse 2012


    If a Viré-Clessé can live over a decade and do it well, youd better believe this will be the one. The chalkiness of this wine is startling yet invigorating. The wine exudes citrus peel, oyster shell, flint and almond skin. Despite all these lean elements, theres a nicely juicy core to give the whole good balance. 92 pts Read More

    Wine review by Christy Canterbury MW

  • A ridiculous number of trigger pullworthies in this new offering, many in their absolute drinking prime. Wish the shop was just down the street from me, rather than the ones that are. But then I'd have to live in NYC.  ;-(I love it when a guy drops 100 cases on a shop, just to 'make some space" in his cellar. Wonder what's going to be filling th... Read More

  • Clos du Chapitre Viré-Clessé 2008


    A bright golden colour, this Macon wine has pear, butterscotch and a hint of lime on the nose with a quite dry, elegant entry. The palate receives muted pear, apple and diacetyl notes. Finish is medium and just a touch warm. A very decent Burgundian Chardonnay at its peak (or just beyond it). Drink up. 87 points. Read More

  • Viré-Clessé Domaine de Roally 2010


    This wine shows an impressive mingling of citrus grapefruit zest, tangerine pulp and orange pith. The breadth and weight on the palate are akin to half-and-half and there are raw milk flavors here, too. Hints of fresh mushrooms surface on the fairly brief finish. Enjoy its youth through 2014.
