Rich, honeyed Chardonnay from old vines. Intensely delectable.

Rich, honeyed, old vine Chardonnay. Shame about the neighbours though. André Bonhomme was influential in Viré-Clessé being upgraded to AOC status rather than just being lumped into the wider Mâcon AOC, because his wines were head and shoulders above those in neighbouring areas.

Founded with a tiny 4 hectares by André Bonhomme in 1956, the estate was at the forefront of the establishment of the Viré-Clessé Appellation in 1998. Organic viticulture is tough in Burgundy; the plots are small and often esoterically arranged (a polite way of saying everything can be jumbled all over the place). But Aurélien Palthey grandson of André and his family do it regardless, and make the most stunning value-for-money sparkling wines that we've ever come across.
