  1. Domaine Emilian Gillet Vire Clesse Quintaine 2016
    VM90
    $24.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90-92 Points!  Bright, full yellow. Yellow fruits and menthol on the nose; a bit less exotic than the 2016 Domaine de Roally Viré-Clessé that preceded it in my tasting with Gautier Thévenet. Conveys a considerably stronger impression of acidity and saline minerality than the Domaine de Roally; if this wine is more youthfully strict, it also boasts greater finesse. Conveys a strong impression of active calcaire, finishing tight but harmonious, with noteworthy density and saline persistence. These vines are at slightly higher altitude than those of Domaine de Roally, and the wine can show a bit of marne bitterness early on, according to Thévenet.

  2. Frantz Chagnoleau Vire Clesse Les Raspilleres 2016
    VM91
    $24.98
    Availability:In Stock
    91 Points! (from young vines on poor calcaire soil at an altitude of 350 meters): Bright yellow. Spicy minerality accented by white pepper on the nose. Dense, thick and seamless, but bracing acidity gives definition and lift to the middle palate. Most impressive today on the brisk, salty, almost iodiney finish, which leaves the mouth refreshed. This would make a perfect accompaniment for oysters, but I'd give it another year or two in bottle to unwind a bit. - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media
