Andre Bonhomme Viré-Clessé Cuvée Spéciale
More information:

André Bonhomme’s first harvest took place in 1956. He was the first grower in the Mâconnais to bottle and sell his own wine, and was at the origin of the creation of the new Viré-Clessé appellation in 1998.

Today, son-in-law Eric Palthey and André’s daughter Jacqueline are in charge of the 11-ha estate, where their son, Aurélien (Oenologist) is taking centre stage. The viticulture is currently being converted to organic, large amounts of straw is still being dispersed in the vineyard, which helps fighting erosion and acts as a natural fertilizer, sheeps are let roaming in the vineyards, keeping the grass in check. The yields are very small, the grapes are hand-harvested and gently crushed, in full, in a pneumatic pressoir. Natural yeasts are used and all parcels are vinified separately before the final assemblage.

"I have been enjoying this wonderful wine for 20 years now, a mouthwatering mix of textured pineapples, peaches and tingling acidity." - The Irish Times, 23 January 2016
