Andre Bonhomme Vire-Clesse Vieilles Vignes 2016
As its name suggests, this comes from vines that have an average age of 80 years. The yield is slightly lower than the other cuvees giving it slightly more concentration, elegance and aromatic complexity. Like the Cuvee Speciale, part is aged in stainless-steel and the other part in oak before being blended together and aged for another year in larger barrels.
Antonio Galloni/Vinous – Pale straw-yellow. Riper, yellower and more exotic on the nose than the cuvée Spéciale, with aromas of apricot, honey and fresh porcini. Rich and firm on the palate, with enticing fruit flavors of peach, apricot and quince complemented by lightly saline minerality. Not a sweet or fleshy style, and nicely dry at 1.8 grams per liter of residual sugar. Finishes firm and persistent, with a strong impression of extract and brisk citrussy grip.
In a mixed or straight case: $56.04
