A gentle note of freshness, made up of lemon and Mirabelle, characterizes the nose on this wine. Hints of cold butter and chalk add nuance. The palate is rounded, ripe but beautifully balanced, carrying its juiciness with elegance.

Winemaker Notes

Chanson Pere & Fils Vire Clesse is a pale gold color. Delicate fragrances of fern mixed with citrus fruit on a hint of minerality. Well balanced and precise. Tense with a very pure fruit combination. Refreshing finish with mineral tinges.

 

Chanson’s regional wine, Viré Clessé is one of the best white wines of the region, combining suppleness and minerality. The appellation lies in the heart of the Mâcon appellation in the south of Burgundy. The two villages, Viré and Clessé form a unique terroir on south-east facing slopes. In Viré, the soil is chalky with large layers of clay. In Clessé, the soil structure is slightly different, with a combination of chalk and clay mixed with liasic marls combined with oyster-fossils, giving the wine an underlying minerality. It’s produced from a combination of Chardonnay and Chardonnay Muscaté grapes.
