Description of the Quintaine 2022 wine bottle from Domaine Guillemot-Michel:


Viré-Clessé Quintaine, an excellence of the Domaine Guillemot-Michel, presents itself as a white wine of rare complexity and elegance, coming from the old Chardonnay vineyards, characterized by over 50 years of winemaking history.

Cultivated on silty clay soil with limestone subsoil, the vineyard extends over 6.5 hectares, with a Guyot type system and a density of 8,000 vines per hectare. The average age of the vineyards reaches 60 years, contributing to an average production of 45 hl per hectare. The winemaking takes place through soft pressing, spontaneous fermentation and a 5-month refinement on the fine lees in 50/60 hl cement vats, giving the wine an extraordinary complexity.

With a total sulfur content of 48 mg/l and a production limited to 40,000 bottles, the Viré-Clessé Quintaine embodies the mastery of Marc Guillemot-Michel. This white wine, while expressing strength and power, surprises with exotic traits and a subtle minerality.

The Viré-Clessé Quintaine is a true champion, a taste experience that captures French grandeur. To be savored in special moments, it goes beautifully with a broth of capon, chicken livers and cardoon sautéed in egg and parmesan, giving a combination of unexpected flavors and textures. Give yourself the privilege of savoring this refined expression of the Maconnais, a sensorial journey through the winemaking heritage of Burgundy.
