Viré Clessé Gondard 2018
Lemony and round textured with a lovely golden yellow colour. This wine is sufficiently rich to be the perfect aperitif but it also has enough strength, richness and body to compliment a diverse range of dishes.
What we say
This wine comes to life from the first sip with its lively acidity and lemon notes. Rich and concentrated with the typical white Burgundy creamy mouthfeel. Its aromatic intensity is suited to poultry, crustaceans, and sautéed vegetables. It is also the perfect partner for cooked seafood.
What they say
The nose makes an immediate and pleasant impression with a bouquet of mayflowers or acacia, springtime honeysuckle, and bloom, together with notes of lemon balm, white peach, verbena, and mint or bracken. As the wine ages, quince jam and pine make their appearance. Lively and fresh, with a slight edge and yet well-rounded, this wine is a reliable introduction to the Mâconnais whites.

About the producer Cécile Gondard
The appellation VIRÉ-CLESSÉ achieved recognition in 1998 and was launched a year later. It is the first appellation Village to be formed from outstanding terroirs within the AOC Mâcon Villages. Viré and Clessé are two communes in southern Bourgogne lying between Tournus and Mâcon. Because the wines of the two villages closely resemble each other in typicity, it was decided to form them into a single appellation, although the terroirs included in it were subjected to a rigorous selection process.
