Vire-Clesse 'Harmonie' Domaine de la Verpaille
From a ‘cru’ area of the Maconnais (since 1998), made solely from Chardonnay, in the driest style, though with the incredibly intense fruit on offer, you wouldn’t think so! Brilliant gold in colour with flavours of peach, pineapple and quince and with upfront aromas of honeysuckle, may flowers and broom.
Domaine de la Verpaille
Husband and wife Baptiste and Estelle took over the family domaine in the heart of Viré Clesse in 2004. Organic since 2006, they make slow fermentations using only natural yeasts, producing generous white Burgundy wines from Chardonnay. 'Our philosophy is to look for balance and biodiversity in our soils in order to get the finest grapes'.
