90 Points, Charles Curtis, Decanter: "The wine is produced in a rich, luxuriant style, with aromas of ripe apricots and quince. The texture is dense - some will find this perhaps a bit heavy - but Lafon says this corresponds to the style of the commune. From a number of parcels all located within the village of Viré, totalling 6ha. The grapes are pressed as whole bunches and fermented in large oak uprights, as well as large casks, before ageing for ten months on the lees." 10/20


90 Points, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy: "Light primrose, some spice to the nose, more yellow fruit, quite punchy, but still with the tight fresh finish, very classy in the powerful, rich style of Viré-Clessé. This is nonetheless in the more mineral style of Viré compared to the sumptuous character of Clessé. I particularly like the lingering quality of the finish." 10/20
