If you love Burgundy, do not pass up these wines. The riveting complexity of these wines is nothing short of astounding. There is always a floral complexity to Gauthier's tied together with lemon oil, orchard fruit, honey & a mineral laden finish.
Pairing: Anything cooked in butter & garnished with saffron
Grape: Chardonnay aged only in tank.
You should probably know a bit more about this wine: (from the importer)
harvest later and thus greater ripeness of the fruit with touches of botrytis at times; minimal intervention in the cellar, including a very slow pressing, lengthy settling and a slow, spontaneous fermentation lasting up to two years; and years of bottle-aging in the Thévenet cellar before release.Domaine de la Bongran bottles only one wine annually, their Viré- Clessé, a unique and oft-controversial bottling due to predictable traces of residual sugar, a result of the Thévenet hands-off approach. While the wine does not drink sweet, it does have an extraordinary richness of flavor and texture along with its characteristic firm acidity and minerality.
