2017 Guillemot Michel Viré-Clessé - 92 PTS - Decanter

decanter logo 250"Gautier Roussille is among the leading young talents in the Mâconnais. This cement-fermented and aged Chardonnay is a blend from 6.2ha. It's fresh and perfumed, with lime blossom notes that are almost reminiscent of a Clare Valley Riesling. It also shows tangy acidity and impressive palate length. Great value too. Drinking Window 2019 - 2023. - Tim Atkin MW"

2016 Guillemot Michel Viré-Clessé - 93 PTS - WA

wa93"Notes of Acacia honey, musky peach, beeswax, fresh apricot and dried white flowers introduce the 2016 Viré-Clessé, a silky, medium to full-bodied wine with exceptional concentration, textural elegance and length on the finish. Despite its ripeness and subtly botrytis-inflected character, it's underpinned by tangy acids and remains beautifully balanced and integrated. This is well worth seeking out. – William Kelley"

2016 Guillemot Michel Viré-Clessé - 92 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Medium yellow. Yellow fruits, orange blossom, smoke and flint on the nose and palate. Thick and saline on entry, then seriously deep in the mid-palate, with suggestions of exotic fruits perfectly countered by strong saline minerality. I love the balance of sweet and salty elements and vibrant acidity. The slowly rising finish is very long and smooth. This wine, made from vineyards that have been Demeter-certified for more than two decades, boasts a thickness that few 2016s from the northern Mâconnais can match. I'd love to follow this unctuous yet energetic Viré-Clessé as it loses some of its baby fat but it's approachable already owing to its texture and balance. - Stephen Tanzer"

2015 Guillemot Michel Viré-Clessé - 90 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Full straw-yellow. Very ripe stone fruits, white plum and pear on the nose. Thick, rich and lightly saline; quite full and horizontal in the mouth, offering a chewy texture. Decent lemony acidity and mineral support keep the fruit surprisingly fresh. A powerful wine in the style of the vintage but not dry or hot, finishing with very good lemony grip and length. This is sweeter, richer and fatter than Guillemot-Michel's 2014 bottling but it wears its alcohol gracefully, and the resounding lemony finish is hardly short on acidity. - Stephen Tanzer"
