Description

Lying in the north of the Maconnais between Tournus and Macon, Vire-Clesse is one of Burgundy's newest appellations. It was formed to bring together the villages of Vire and Clesse which until 1999 bottled their wines as Macon-Clesse and Macon-Vire. The Chardonnay of Vire-Clesse is distinctly different from the appellations further to the south such as Pouilly-Fuisse and Saint-Veran.
