This wine is out of stock

£ 9.00 tax incl.

This Paradou is a 100% Viognier and will suit anyone who likes very fruity and floral white wines. The nose could be described as a perfume of peach and white flowers. The mouth turns on delicate aromas of citrus. It is a nice aperitif white and can also be tasted with seafood or asparagus. A good Viognier for amateurs!

A word about the domain
Château Pesquié is a family business run by two brothers, Alexandre & Frédéric Chaudière, and their cousin Renaud. The estate has been in their family since the 1970’s and it has become one of the references in the Ventoux appellation (Jeb Dunnuck’s favourite domain in the region). 70 hectares of vines on the southern slope of the Mont Ventoux, with no less than 9 different grapes an about to be converted to an organic vineyard. The wines always deliver high-quality and character, in a modern and ambitious style.
