The Chapoutier family have been at the forefront of Rhone Valley Wine production for generations and make some of the regions most iconic wines. For this wine the grapes were sourced from vineyards made of clay, quartz pebbles, limestone gravel and loess in the areas with leptynites (gneissic metamorphic rock) granitoids in the IGP Collines Rhodaniennes sub-region.
Delicate with notes of bergamot and flint stone. Very fresh on entry, dominated by the typical Viognier aromas. On the mid-palate, there is good balance between the acidic tension associated with its terroir of origin and the natural full body of the varietal and its ageing. The finish is savoury, bringing out the rustic and mineral overtones.
Direct pressing of the whole bunches. Selection of the best juices from the pressing. Light settling. Fermentation followed by 8-9 months ageing in stainless vats. Undergoes malolactic fermentation. Very light stirring up of the lees (batonnage) during the first months of ageing.
