2019 Viré-Clessé, Héritiers du Comte Lafon

2019 Viré-Clessé, Héritiers du Comte Lafon

Many parcels are blended into this brilliant wine, all from the Viré side of the appellation. The old vines thrive in the village’s clay-rich top soil over limestone subsoil. It is impressively round and powerful and shows the domaine’s attention to detail paying dividends in its fine and complex structure. It is subtle and very finely done. A highlight in 2019.

Tasting notes

The 2019 Vire-Clessé has a very appealing bouquet of white peach and lime aromas, an underlying earthiness lending another dimension to the aromatics. The palate is well balanced with generous, slightly Muscat-tinged fruit, maybe missing a little definition on the finish yet still full of freshness. Fine.
