Viré-Clessé is a quite recent appellation in the most Southern Tip of Burgundy. It is some 300km from Chablis, yet we’d place these crisp and refreshing whites under the same banner. 2019 proved to be a stunning vintage for white Burgundy with exuberant wines which nevertheless retained fantastic acidity and freshness. This delicious wine comes from a small property run by a husband and wife team and is made from old vines from the villages of Viré and Clessé. Yellow straw in colour with a nose of hawthorn and holly, candied apples and pears. On the palate it is round, generous, ample, and delicate in texture that lingers on the palate for a long finish. A long-standing Eton Vintners favourite white Burgundy, it’s good with fish, shellfish and oriental dishes, or wonderful as an aperitif.
