About

Product Description:

"Located in southern Burgundy, 20 km North of Mâcon, Domaine Pascal Bonhomme began in 2001, with 2.5 hectares of vines in appellation Viré Clessé (the commune so-named since 1998) and today encompasses some 6 hectares. The terroir here is argilo-calcareous. Green harvest is made according to the nature of each vintage. Grass is allowed to grow freely between the vines. The grape harvest remains manual, and the pressing of the grapes is done by pneumatic press. The wine making remains traditional, temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation, 100% malolactic fermentation most years. Aging on the fine lees, then a light filtration before bottling. A throw back to classic and artisanal wine making, we are very excited to have recently found this treasure in southern Burgundy. Pascal Bonhomme has some of the best situated sites in Vire-Clesse and he makes every effort in his vines to convey that in the bottle." -Importer
