“The Cuvée E.J. Thevenet, which ranks as one of Burgundy's greatest wines. What's more, its longevity is legendary: even in challenging vintages such as 1984, the Thevenets' humble Mâcon is still cruising along in the cellar, while most of the Côte de Beaune's grandest whites are already senescent” - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate The 2017 Viré-Clessé, which will be bottled at the beginning of 2022, has a killer nose with an almost Germanic feel, intense nectarine, melon and damp earthy scents with just a hint of petrol. The palate is beautifully balanced with a line of acidity keeping everything taut and linear. The 2017 is a little waxy in texture with orange rind, stem ginger and white pepper furnishing the very persistent finish. This is superb - a Viré-Clessé with genuine substance and longevity. 92-94 Points. - Neal Martin, Vinous.com A rich yet bright and energetic nose, underlying tropical fruits with a dried and concentrated character. A ‘furry’, savoury, honey aspect also. The palate is incredibly rich and unctuous yet seemingly so light on its feet with fresh, lovely and lingering acidity. VERY long with the same flavour profile as the nose. -Jono Hersey, FWC
