Domaine Guillemot-Michel Quintaine Viré-Clessé Chardonnay 2016

$29.99

Notes of Acacia honey, musky peach, beeswax, fresh apricot and dried white flowers introduce the 2016 Viré-Clessé, a silky, medium to full-bodied wine with exceptional concentration, textural elegance and length on the finish. Despite its ripeness and subtly botrytis-inflected character, it's underpinned by tangy acids and remains beautifully balanced and integrated. This is well worth seeking out.

Finely textured and wispy, with a tropical / floral / leesy character. Finishes brisk and clean, on a salty/stony note. Quite pretty

Less vire-clesse, more very classy.

A rich and very well balanced Macon. White peach, pear and tropical notes on the nose. Full bodied, with a creamy texture (guessing from the lees) and wood spice. Long finish of lemon and saline. Great QPR.
