Guillemot-Michel Vire Clesse Charleston
Domaine Guillemot-Michel
France - Burgundy - Vire Clesse

This cuvée is produced from hundred-year old vines that the great-grandfather planted after he returned from World War I. The family wanted to honor his memory and vinify these vines the same way he did, in old demi-muids.
Charleston is a deep and complex wine that gently express itself in the glass, offering juicy white fruit flavors and a lengthy finish.
