Viré-Clessé Domaine de Roally 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The superb location of the vines on a limestone ridge overlooking the plain of the Saône river, the vines’ old mix of different strands of Chardonnay, their age and condition, then a simple but careful vinification make for a powerful, yet complex and delicate wine. Delicious in its youth, it also ages gracefully, acquiring more intense roasted notes, and sometimes, the deeply mineral character often associated with Riesling, rather than Chardonnay.

Chardonnay from the Mâcon is hardly ever made from estate-grown grapes. Here's a rich version that's full and round in the mouth with yellow apple fruit and fresh almonds on the finish.
