" Unwinding in the glass with aromas of pear, clear honey, oatmeal and white flowers, the 2019 Viré-Clessé is medium to full-bodied, satiny and textural, with a tightly wound core and chalky grip on the finish. This important cuvée for the domaine was harvested in seven different picks this year."

"The wine is produced in a rich, luxuriant style, with aromas of ripe apricots and quince. The texture is dense - some will find this perhaps a bit heavy - but Lafon says this corresponds to the style of the commune. From a number of parcels all located within the village of Viré, totalling 6ha. The grapes are pressed as whole bunches and fermented in large oak uprights, as well as large casks, before ageing for ten months on the lees. Window 2021 - 2029"
