A well-structured and refreshing palate with lemon, lime, pineapple and melon notes. Long on the finish with very subtle oaking. Very good old vine Vire-Clesse!
This is a relatively new domaine, having been created in 2008. The Gondard familly have been ensconced in the Mâconnais village of Viré for centuries and have been vine growers since 1981. Until 2007 they were selling their grapes to the local co-op buy came to realise that their parcels of vines produced grapes of such good quality that they deserved to be vinified seperately and so created their own domaine and started to vinify and bottle the wines themselves. The wine show the typical richness of mâconnais wines but also a surprising level of elegance and minerality. Lovely white Burgundy from a lesser known appellation at sensible prices.
