Domaine Andre Bonhomme’s white Burgundies always impress and the 2020 Vire Clessé continues the winery’s latest trend of raising the bar each vintage. The domaine presently covers 11 hectares located on the clay and limestone soils of both the Vire and Clesse communes and is run by Andre’s daughter and her husband.
They really knocked it out of the park in 2020; the fruit here is so pure and clean. It’s already showing so well. Glistening pale yellow-green to the rim, infused with mouth-watering aromas of ripe apple, pear and quince, and crushed almonds with honey and rich creamy middle and a fantastic rush of acidity and minerality that are present throughout.
It continues the calling card of Bonhomme’s Vire-Clesse, if you close your eyes and took a sip, it would have you convinced you were drinking Meursault at least a 3x price tag. This is one of those White Burgundies you want to have in stock all year round.
