Jean Thevenet Domaine de la Bongran Vire-Clesse 'Cuvee Tradition' 2011, Maconnais Burgundy

Known as the master of Mâconnais, Jean Thevenet makes wines as complex, fine and with aromatic power and freshness as a Puligny-Montrachet. Domaine de la Bongran's Vire Clesse is made from organically grown Chardonnay vines with minimal intervention. Very low yields, late harvest and prone to noble rot vineyards result in very complex, creamy beautiful wines. Mature and ready to enjoy now!

92 Points, Neal Martin for Robert Parker
"It has an absolutely divine bouquet that can barely contain its heady perfume of orange blossom, peppermint and wild fennel, just a smear of dried honey on top and maybe even a hint of truffle. This is so nuanced but, at the same time, very complex. The palate is well balanced with lemongrass and orange rind, marmalade surfacing midway through the experience. The acidity is very well judged and there is a very harmonious, almost Condrieu-like finish that has swagger and verve. What are you waiting for?... Grab some bottles."
