Vire-Clesse Village AOC is created in 1999, which is located in the north part of Maconnais.

Lemon light stony, light yeast note, honey note. Medium+ acidity. Medium+ length. A good Vire-Clesse, and the price of this AOC is also very reasonable (competitive with many Bourgogne blanc).

SY Rating: 16/20

Thenard is the 2nd largest vineyard owner in Montrachet, around 1.86 ha (the largest is Marques de Laguiche, own 2.06 ha, but the grapes are vinified by Drouhin).

Quite a elegant and thin Montrachet. The nose and palate is unadorned, not dazzling. Hazelnut, flower, honey, light caramel, stony, and oak. High in acidity. Need 10+ yrs for the peak.

SY Rating: 18/20

Medium- ruby color. Fruit candy of Raspberry and cranberry, light soil, and light leaves. A fruity driven Pinot Noir. Medium+ acidity, medium body, with lingering length. Quite a fresh and easy Bourgogne, and definitely a must buy stuff (considering the price).

Bois Chevaux is the largest 1er cru vineyard Thenard own in Givry, around 7.66 ha.

SY Rating: 16.5/20
