Country: France, Rhone
Tasting Notes: Honey and almonds on the nose, along with white pepper, faint vanillin and cardamom notes. Stone fruit is more nectarine than apricot, suggesting something fleshier and less concentrated. The palate confirms this, extremely round and generous with flashes of florals, a hint of white chocolate and peach/nectarine all the way through. Finishes dry and round with the faintest prickle of acidity to keep things balanced. An astrounding vintage in Rhone, and it shows.
Varietal: 100% Viognier
