Last born of the Maconnais communal appellations, the production area of Vir-Clesse is located 15 kilometers north of M’con, on the right side border of the Saone river, more precisely within the communes of Clesse, Laiz, Montbellet and Vir in the department of the Saone et Loire. This Maison Trenel wine is a selection of the best cuvres made with grapes from the calcareous clay plateaux of Clesse.
The fermenting process takes place in either stainless steel or cement tanks. The length of this phase varies: it can take several weeks or even several months. This is a very important stage when the wine acquires most of its character (aromas, fruit).
Colour: A beautiful brilliant light gold
Nose: white blossom, fresh butter, hazelnut and citrus fruit
Palate: confirmed underpinned by vibrant acidity, harmonious.
How to drink and serve: A dry wine is best served chilled (8°C – 11°C), either as an aperitif or with a meal based on fish (for example, it is delicious with a filet of sole in sorrel sauce).
