2021 Domaine Georges Vernay Viognier Le Pied de Samson
$52.99 / $49.99 on 4+ (code: 4saves3)
One of my ALL TIME favorite Viognier wines, you can't beat the quality here for the price. While this is not Condrieu, it bests many that are Condrieu that demand 50-100% more in price.
70% 1970s Viognier, 30% 1990s Viognier from Condrieu, steel vat fermented at 18°, then raised 60% vat, 40% large barrel 7 months, officially organic since 2020, 10,000 b
yellow robe. The nose is lucid, gives a combination of apricot, pear, a hint of exotic fruit, toasting. The palate bears attractive richness, has a fluid style, unfurls dried fruits flavours, with late grip, assurance. It has a refinement that will suit steamed dishes. Bottled two weeks ago. 13.5°. To 2024 June 2021
