Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Its straw color offers a nice nose of yellow fruits, brioche and menthol notes. In the mouth, this wine has a good balance, vinosity, nerve, with a touch of fat. Tight finish, with a slight mineral tip.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Do you know ?
If vines can usually produce wine for over 120 years, their production tends to decrease over time. The vines’ best years oscillate between 10 to 30 years.
Domain and appellation
Maison Jean Loron
Although Jean Loron was the first in the family line to practise winemaking in 1711, the maison was formally established by his grandson Jean Marie Loron in 1821. This brand is now an international success thanks to wines that are memorable for their consistency and longevity.
- Terroir: The maison Jean Loron spreads across 135 hectares of vines located in 6 domains across Macon and Belleville sur Saone. The wines are issued from 6 different appellations. The Viré-Clessé old vines are over 55 years old and lay on a clay-limestone soil.
- Viticulture: A contract established with over 50 winegrowers as well as a thorough selection help to only obtain qualitative grapes. The vines selected for the Viré-Clessé Vieilles Vignes are fully organic.
- Vinification: The wine ages in stainless steel tanks.
- Chardonnay : 100%
