£84.00

Viognier
Serge and Martine Costes, owners of this beautiful 15ha family estate, also supply our lovely Domaine de Cause Cahors Malbec wine and recently they have had great success with a very difficult grape to grow – Viognier. A “non permitted grape”  in the Cahors appellation, hence it can only carry the IGP label, this grape was almost extinct in Franc 20 years ago. However it is now thriving across the world as wine lovers appreciate it’s many unique characteristics!
This crisp yet low acidity wine really does engulf you with heady aromas of white peaches, pears and apricots. Think of every aromatic flower and fruit that you can, then throw them all into a glass — that’s Viognier. Aged in oak barrels to give that further complexity, this sensual wine can take all those big sauces and sometimes difficult rich foods–think lobster thermidor, fat prawns in butter, Thai dishes etc.
Drink well chilled, indeed the younger the better, and certainly within 4 years of the vintage to fully appreciate all the nuances in the glass.
Viognier – a wine sprinkled with stardust!
