Domaine de LA BONGRAN Vire-Clesse "Levroutee" 2017
Wine Region: Burgundy - France Grape: Chardonnay
Tasting notes: "Later this year, the Thevenet family will begin releasing the 2017 Viré-Clessé Cuvée Levroutée, the first time they were able to produce this cuvée since 2006. Unwinding in the glass with aromas of citrus oil, caramelized pineapple, mandarin, white flowers and spices, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and textural, with a layered core, racy acids and appreciable residual sweetness and structural tension which will, for my palate, require a decade of additional bottle age before this really starts to realize all of its potential." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
About the winery: Family property, the vineyard has been passed down from generation to generation of winegrowers and stonemasons. It covers 15 hectares on the land of Quintaine. Emile then Jean and his son Gautier Thevenet, heirs to long-standing know-how, work there with the utmost respect for nature and this specific land. Here, the terroir, where the subsoil - the white marls - shows at the foot of the vines, allows the grape variety, exclusively Chardonnay, to give its full potential. It brings complexity and finesse to the wine, a fair balance between aromatic power and minerality.
Expert Rating: The Wine Advocate: 94+/100
