The 2018 Vire-Clessé was bottled a little later than Lafon’s other Mâconnais wines. It has a delightful seashell bouquet that opens with joie-de-vivre given a modest swirling. The palate is harmonious and candied on the entry, offering orange zest and light pineapple notes and pretty hints of white peach toward the finish. Irresistible.
