"Vibrant, complex Chardonnay, performing better than its price point suggests. A lovely melon and mango flavour with lovely oak integration and perfect balance"
Brothers Richard and Stéphane Martin of Domaine de la Croix Senaillet, in Davayé, recently purchased this beautifully sited domaine in Viré-Clessé. This is an exciting AOC, created in 1999, lying between Tornus and Mâcon. It comprises two east facing slopes at 220-400m, of Bajocian and Jurassic marly limestone and “crays” (white limestone pebbles) and shares many of the attributes of Vergisson and Solutré.
