Cave de Viré

Mâcon Villages Chardonnay Vieilles Vignes Vérizet 2021

Mâcon Villages, Burgundy, France

100% Chardonnay | 12% ABV

£17.50

We are delighted to offer this French white wine made from 100% Chardonnay grapes from the renowned Burgundy region. The limited vigor gives this wine great finesse. It displays mouth full of charm and roundness, balanced by citrus nuances and can be enjoyed with regional gastronomy(veined ham, eggs in white wine, Burgundy snails, goat's cheese).

Guide to icons

Yellow crystalline hue with subtle golden glints. An intense nose bursting with ripened fruits layered over hints of white-fleshed fruit (wild peach, pear). Charming and well-rounded on the palate, balanced out with nuances of citrus fruits.

Service: Serve chilled at around 10°C.

Food Pairing: This wonderful aperitif wine pairs beautifully with local delicacies (parsley-seasoned ham, poached
eggs in a white wine sauce, Burgundy snails, goat’s cheeses), as well as white fish, seafood and shellfish, cream-based poultry dishes, sautéed vegetables and, soft mould cheeses.

-

The surface area of vines linked to the Cave is 240 hectares and its wine producers consist of 150 cooperative members including 40 winegrowers.

These old vines have an average age of 40 to 50 years and grow on limestone clay-loam soil. Primarily south-east-facing, they are often overlooking the Val de Saône. Their deep roots withstand dry and arid conditions. Minimal vigor gives this wine a highly refined structure.

White | Still | 75cl | 12% ABV

Cellaring: Drinking well now, can be cellared for 1 to 3 years.

Vinification: The grapes are harvested before they grow over-ripe to retain a nice acidity on the palate. Pneumatic pressing. Clarification by flotation. Fermentation in low-temperature (15-16°C) stainless steel tanks to preserve the grapes’ aromatic intensity and vibrancy. Bottled after a mild lees-aging process (six months) for a rounded, full-bodied sensation.
