Share

Vire-Clesse AOC

Family ownership, the vineyard of the Thevenet Family has been handed down from generation to generation of vine growers and stone cutters, for more than a century.

Grape Variety:

100% Chardonnay

Vineyard:

At Domaine Emilian-Gillet, the environment friendly viticulture and the minimal intervention make every details count from the growing, winemaking, and aging. Here the terroir enhance the great potentiel of the famous grape variety of Burgundy. Chardonnay’s vines are at least 45 years old and take advantage from a limestone-clay terroir, the yield is regulated to keep the quality of the grapes.

Winemaking:

This is a unoaked Chardonnay, manually harvested with an thermoregulated vinification without any yeast addition, so the wine can keep all its innate characteristics. A malolactic fermentation is made to reduce the natural acidity of the wine and appeal to his delicacy, then it is aged in tank to 12 to 18 month. Bottling occurs once year only and the bottles are kept in the cellar until the wine develops mature and ripe characteristics. They are discreetly release only when ready to be fully enjoyed

Tasting Note:

A bright yellow color. Ripe elegant nose of honey, citrus, minerals and slightly nutty. The palate is polished, and balanced with an ample and round mouth fill on a persistent long finish.

Rating:

Vintage 2014: 91 Points Vinous
