“Viré-Clessé” A.O.C. is the first Village appellation born from the “Mâcon Villages” A.O.C. The value of the remarkable terroirs of Viré and Clessé have been recognized. Mingling crinoidal limestone and limestoneclay, the soils of this area are perfect for the production of elegant and aromatic Chardonnay. Trénel’s Viré-Clessé 2015 is selected on parcels with calcareous soils in the area of Viré, giving it freshness and minerality. It’s a dry wine, without any residual sugar, unlike numerous references of the appellation. The wine-making is classical and this wine’s particular character is only a product from its terroir
