We recently landed our first shipment from Xavier and were pretty eager to jump in and try the wines. This Viognier is one of the two whites we brought in this time round (we also landed the Chateauneuf-du-Pape blanc) and it hails from the Gres de Montpellier and Pic St Loup regions of the Languedoc.
Bright gold colour, with plenty of classic apricot and orange blossom aromas. Viognier is a fairly low acid variety and some new world examples can sometimes seem a bit flabby but there’s none of that here. Medium-bodied, the palate has weight and softness but is dry with lovely balanced acidity that keeps it fresh. A great aperitif or lunch wine and good value too.
