Viré-Clessé is one up on normal Mâcon, itself one of our favourite appellations for good, affordable white burgundy. Their latest 2020 is really glorious.

The Viré-Clessé appellation was created in 1999 as the vineyards (and wine) surrounding the villages of Viré and Clessé were considered a step up from the Mâcon as a whole and deserved their own appellation. The wines of Viré-Clessé have gone from strength to strength and Jaffelin, whose history is inseparable from that of the Collégiale Notre Dame de Beaune where their wines still lie and mature, have taken full advantage. 2020 is another top-quality vintage in the region, and winemaker Marinette Garnier’s Viré-Clessé is one of the very best we have tasted.

How does the wine taste? Customer Reviews (2)
A rich, creamy chardonnay with a hint of apricot, honey and lemon. The wine has a steely undertone and attractive minerality. All in all a lovely, high quality white Burgundy.

A lovely creamy chardonnay with a good nose and length. Overtones of butter and honey, apricot fruit and citrus finish. On my order again list.

Excellent drinking with many layers - and shows its details best if not over chilled - I think it best drunk at no less than 17-18 degrees centigrade in-bottle temperature and once poured let the wine gradually open in the glass and sip - do not gulp, tempting as that is!
