The Details

In a Nutshell

Impressive and powerful - peaches and cream in a glass!

Tasting Notes

A Viognier of intense power, character and zest. Rich fruit flavours of ripe peach, apricot and pear dominate the senses. Full and creamy on the palate, the wine remains very balanced and textural with a clean, fresh finish.

Production Notes

Viognier grapes from a small parcel of less than a hectare are picked at optimum ripeness - a decision made by Eric Monnin in consultation with the grower, to deliver rich, concentrated flavours. Situated in the Vins du Pays du Gard in the Languedoc, the vineyard is abundant with apricot trees that surround the vineyards, and which, like the vines benefit from the terroir and climatic conditions of the region.

Must is cooled prior to vinification to ensure maximum fruit concentration and no oak is used. We bottle in dark glass to protect the fresh aromatics.

Producer - Boutinot France Gard

The Gard region lies at the southern end of the Rhône valley, a river valley which stretches from Lyon in the north to the Mediterranean delta in the south. The red wines here bear the supple textures and peppery influences of the Rhône in their Grenache and Syrah but also in their style of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Whites too extend the Rhône thread into the Gard – with Viognier infiltrating from the north (from its rarefied hideouts in Condrieu and Côte Rôtie) and Clairette spreading its reach from the top southern Rhône enclave of white Châteauneuf-du-Pape. These grape varieties and the domaines we work with (Bahourat, Mas Barrau, Sources de la Marine and Montval) are all situated on the high plateau of the Costières de Nîmes – old river beds of stony, free-draining soil of immaculately tended rows of vines on flat land in large blocks of vineyards, which facilitate very efficient farming and value-for-money pricing.
