100% Viognier / 2016
90 JD
Yellow with golden highlights, intense apricot and tangerine with a hint of vanilla. Voluptuous, fresh fruits scents of apricot, peach, and citrus with a zingy fruit finish that is long and lush. Revealing its limestone terroir, this wine delivers lots of complexity. Apricots, peaches, tangerines and white flowers are complemented by herbs and mineral nuances. Partial malolactic fermentation on 17% of the wine gives this beautiful body. Lush, juicy but dry, this wine has an approachable feel. Its balanced acidity is refreshing and is perfect with lobster in cream sauce, mussels in saffron sauce, and other creamy flavorful dishes. Great for sipping.

The 2016 Vin de France Viognier offers classic Viognier notes of tangerine and orange blossom, with terrific intensity, and it stays lively and fresh on the palate, with good acidity and a great finish. It’s another terrific value from this estate that delivers the goods.
