Louis Latour Viré-Clessé Les Champs 2015 | Makes everyday White Wine Drinking great!
The Louis Latour Viré-Clessé Les Champs 2015 presents brilliant golden-green. One of the richest wines ever to come off this plot. Aromas feature a plush mix of ripe apple and pear, a touch of apricot pit. Vinified in stainless steel to avoid muddling richness and purity of this succulent Chardonnay. The attack is juicy, weighty, and plush, intensely concentrated, braced with the limestone backbone that so intrigued the monks of Cluny 900 years ago.
Winery | A fresh and delicate wine with delicious aromas of flowers (acacia, hawthorn) and fruit (white peach, citrus) with hints of mint. Lively, fresh and round and full of charm. Pair Louis Latour Viré-Clessé Les Champs 2015 with Charcuterie – fish – goats cheese. Made traditional in stainless steel vats, temperature controlled with complete malolactic fermentation.
Maison Louis Latour | Legendary
After 200+ years in the wine trade, the vineyard holdings of Maison Louis Latour are the stuff of legends. Grand Cru and Premier Cru lieux-dits in Corton-Charlemagne, Chassagne-Montrachet, and Meursault, among others, have yielded gorgeously pure, high-scoring wines that have impressed every critic in the world. The top bottlings can age for decades, and collectors don’t bat an eye at triple-digit prices.
But when we asked the propriétaire who can afford to drink Montrachet and Corton Clos du Roi seven nights per week what he sips when he’s not swirling Grand Crus in oversized Riedel, Louis-Fabrice didn’t miss a beat. “Chez Bocuse, Troisgros, or Guy Savoy, I like old vintages of Corton-Charlemagne,” he said. “But when the kids are at the table, we toast the monks of Cluny and we drink great vintages of Viré-Clessé.
Viré-Clessé | Macon, Burgundy
Lying in the north of the Mâconnais between Tournus and Mâcon, Viré-Clessé is one of Burgundy’s newest appellations. It was formed to bring together the villages of Viré and Clessé which until 1999 bottled their wines as Mâcon-Clessé and Mâcon-Viré. The Chardonnay of Viré-Clessé is distinctly different from the appellations further to the south such as Pouilly-Fuissé and Saint-Véran. A perfect venue for this Louis Latour Viré-Clessé Les Champs 2015.
