André Bonhomme is a founding father & benchmark producer of Burgundy's Viré-Clessé region. He established his word-famous estate in 1956, and was largely responsible for the creation of the new, more prestigious Viré-Clessé appellation in the 1990s. Now under the direction of André's daughter Jacqueline, the 11 hectare estate traverses clay and limestone soils in Viré and Clessé... This is an amazing, age-worthy wine from a legendary estate. Not to be missed by any fan of white Burgundy!
