Côtes du Rhône "Blanc de Viognier" 2016 - Domaine Grand Veneur 2016


Made from a specific parcel with ideal soils for white grapes, this wine is a pure expression of the Viognier, a highly aromatic grape grown in the Rhône valley. Very classy with subtle aromas of white peach, pear and flowers, keeping enough minerality to provide a good balance. Try it on a goat cheese, you will love it.

What experts say  
Decanter.jpg

89/100 "Interesting lemongrass and honeysuckle are on the nose. There’s a touch of fresh peach and marzipan too. It’s full and lush but has enough concentration of fruit to maintain structure."

87/100 "Honeydew, crushed stone and hints of ground cinnamon and clove are appetizing upfront. This Viognier from the Southern Rhône is full and round on the palate, with ample weight and a trace of bitterness on the finish."
