2020 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 topsoil over limestone subsoil. The wines from this side of the appellation tend to be straighter and tighter than the more generous and rounded Clessé side. In 2020 it is wonderfully restrained. There’s nothing showy or flamboyant here; it’s all class, as seen on its long, refined finish.
