The 2006 Vire Clesse Cuvee Botrytise comes from a parcel of vines with particularly strong marne soils that tend to produce botrytised grapes, this cuvée is 100% botrytised fruit, unlike the Cuvée Levroutée. So this comes packing with 204gm/L residual sugar. Lucid golden in color with green tints, it has a beautiful bouquet that you would think is a fine Sauternes. This is very pure and possesses breathtaking focus. The palate is stunning: exquisite balance, perfectly judged acidity and compelling honeyed, sorbet-like fruit that is somewhere between Sauternes and Beerenauslese. Upon reflection it veers towards the latter in style due to the lightness of touch and the absence of new oak that reduces heaviness in the mouth. It is a Mâconnais that will knock your socks off, so wear two pairs. Aug 2017, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2017-2045
