Florent Rouve, Viré-Clessé Vieilles Vignes 2014

Since 2013, Florent Rouve has been at the reins of Domaine Rikckaert which was created by the Dutch producer Jean Rikckaert in 1998. With holdings in the Jura and southern Burgundy, the same philosophy is used across their portfolio: minimal intervention to allow the grape and terroir to express themselves. Viré-Clessé is a fairly new appellation, formed from the two villages which used to be bottled under Mâcon-Clessé and Mâcon-Viré. A charming wine with aromas of ripe apple, peach and acacia. While it has a creamy mouthfeel and is quite weighty, it is fresh and elegant with a citrus edge to it. To enjoy with fish or white meat.
Taster: Christelle Guibert

Shows peach, honeysuckle and pear notes on the palate. This is a serious and weighty, concentrated example of Viré-Clessé that would embarrass many village Meursaults. Judiciously oaked, rich and round on the palate, with great acidity.
