Vire-Clesse 'Harmonie' Domaine de la Verpaille 2018
Vire-Clesse ‘Hamonie’ from Domaine de la Verpaille is made from 100% Chardonnay grown on the south east hillsides of Vire-Clesse in southern Burgundy. It is a charming, rich and captivating wine that is packed full of ripe and candied fruits, dried apricots, peace and a touch of exoticism. This intense bouquet is complemented on the palate with fresh citrus, orange and hints of toffee. The finish is perfectly balanced with freshness and lasting richness. It is the ideal wine for Burgundy lovers to get their Burgundy fix at a decent price.
Domaine de la Verpaille is owned and run by Baptiste & Estelle Philippe who are the 5th generation of their family to run this charming wee estate in the heart of Vire-Clesse. Production is focused on the Chardonnay grape and the vineyards were certified Organic in 2006. All their wines are lees aged for 12 months before release which gives a characteristic richness and depth of flavour which is simply wonderful.
