Jules Du Souzy Vire Classe Vielles Vignes

Lord Jules de Souzy, lived in Chateau de la Terriere during the 19th century and developed its reputation for the fine wines it produced. The range of wines Jules de Souzy our winemaker range is named in his honour. Jules de Souzy grapes are sourced from high density vineyards primarily in the Maconnais and Beaujolais, and the wines vinified using traditional processes.  We have an overriding respect for quality and the sustainable approaches utilised in the different vineyards.

Vineyards

From the villages of Vire and Clesse, the main crest is a limestone formation rising above marls of the Lias series. The base rocks consist entirely of upper Jurassic limestones. The territory of Clesse includes marls of the lower Jurassic Lias.

Vinification

The grapes are pressed and a controlled, cool fermentation takes place immediately in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation is only partial to retain some of the crispness. Bottling happens after 8 months.

Tasting Notes

Appealing, fresh Macon from the old vines found in the villages of Vire and Clesse. Partial malolactic fermentation and 8 months on fine lees deliver aromas of muscat, apricot and exotic fruits and a round, medium-bodied palate.

Goes very well with seafoods, fish and starters and a very good aperitif.
