Located on the right bank of the Rhône, this appellation is the northernmost in the Rhône Valley and produces white wines. It is also one of the Rhône Valley’s most prestigious appellations.
VINEYARDS AND TERROIR
The Viognier thrives on the appellation’s narrow southeast- facing terraces, protected by low walls built from local stone. The soil is mainly granite.
The grapes are pressed and go into temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. Fermentation is carried out at a low temperature to preserve the fruit as much as possible. The wine then spends 10 months on its fine lees in used barrels.
Refined and complex on the nose with accents of white flowers (acacia) and white-fleshed fruit complemented by a touch of honey. Broad and harmonious on the palate, showing minerality and finishing with notes of candied citrus.
SERVING AND FOOD PAIRINGS
Serve between 13-14°C, when young (2-4 years). Pair it with poultry in a creamy sauce, lobster or sea scallops.
