Vire Clesse “Cuvee Special” 2013 Domaine Andre Bonhomme
John Wilson highly recommends this wine in his article about Chardonnay in this weekend’s paper.
Also called the “The Meursault of the Macon” is produced from old vines ( average age 50 years) . This is a natural wine with a hint of oak and only one third of the permitted level of Sulphites.
These two Macon villages ( Lugny is the third) amalgamated to produce their own AC wine in 1998 , however John Wilson claims to have enjoyed it for 20 years , great man John
