Viré-clessé on Snooth

  • Lafon Vire-Clesse 2012

    Snoothrank:

    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

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Héritiers du Comte Lafon Mâcon Vire Clesse 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Beaune Imports of Berkeley brings here a golden straw hue with aromas of rich, dried yellow fruits wine; round and bright in the mouth with flavor notes of dried apples, pears and star fruits, lingering long on the refreshingly tart palate; this is one hell of a Chardonnay value! Read More

  • Viré-Clessé Domaine de Roally 2010

    Snoothrank:

    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.

  • André Bonhomme Viré-Clessé Vieilles Vignes 2005

    Snoothrank:

    This wine was a banquet in a glass: a sweet and fruity start, mellowing to a dry (but not TOO dry) fullness, finishing with peppery/spicy notes. Easily the finest Syrah I have ever tasted, and possibly the most exquisite wine I have ever had the pleasure of sampling. Read More
