The pale yellow hue of this wine’s robe is complemented by its lively effervescence. The bubbles are small and quick to rise to a fine mousse.
The nose is moderately intense yet complex. The sweet pastry, biscuit and orchard fruit notes are followed and enhanced by hints of citrus, white flowers and fresh butter.
The initial taste is clean: this is a very silky and sparkling wine whose sugar content works well with its body. There is a certain chalky minerality and the texture is smooth. It is characterful without being overbearing.
The finish is crisp, with a slight mineral undertone, and long at 6 to 8 seconds. It leaves an excellently balanced acidic aftertaste, with a sugar component that is undeniably pleasing on the palate.
93 Points Wine Enthusiast- Made using fruit sourced from the high-elevation Haute-Serre estate, this wine is surprisingly elegant despite the high alcohol. It has a fresh blackberry flavor, with acidity that‰۪s balanced by the stewed-fruit richness. The tarry texture and firm tannins all promise long-term aging.
In the heart of the Macon winegrowing region, South of Burgundy. The two villages Vire and Clesse form a unique ‰terroir‰ on slopes facing South-East. In Vire, the soil is chalky with large layers of clay. In Clesse , the soil structure is slightly different with a combination of chalk and clay mixed with liasic marls combined with oyster- fossils which convey to the wine a specific minerality.This is one of the best white wines of the region combining suppleness and minerality.
