Domaine de LA BONGRAN Vire-Clesse "Cuvee EJ Thevenet" 2015
Wine Region: Burgundy - France Grape: Chardonnay
Tasting notes: It is in this cuvee the full expression of the Bongran terroir, where the subsoil emerges at the foot of the vines, which gives the wine complexity and finesse, a fair balance between aromatic power and freshness. Aromas of white flowers, lemon, and verbena.
About the winery: Family property, the vineyard has been passed down from generation to generation of winegrowers and stonemasons. It covers 15 hectares on the land of Quintaine. Emile then Jean and his son Gautier Thevenet, heirs to long-standing know-how, work there with the utmost respect for nature and this specific land. Here, the terroir, where the subsoil - the white marls - shows at the foot of the vines, allows the grape variety, exclusively Chardonnay, to give its full potential. It brings complexity and finesse to the wine, a fair balance between aromatic power and minerality.
