Domaine de Couron Cotes du Rhone Viognier 2022
Cotes du Rhone

It's rare to find a GREAT viognier at such a low price.  Like all of our most affordable wines, they overdeliver with a LOT of wine for the money.  Stonefruits, mandarins, honeysuckle, this aromatic grape delivers a textbook version in this wine, with one thing a lot of the Condrieu and new word wines lack, ACIDTY!  It has the oily texture with a nice beam of acidity, just enough for perfect integration.

Growers:         Jean-Luc and Marie-Lise Dorthe

           Saint Marcel d’Ardeche, 45 miles northwest of Avignon.  The area is rich with ancient ruins, including vestiges of a Roman outpost

               An elevated plateau of drift boulders of limestone at 380 meters
Quantity:      680 cases for the US

Vinification:    Native yeasts.  Harvested entirely by hand.   Very short contact time between crush and pressing.   Full malolactic fermentation as the Viognier ferments slowly and coolly under 60°F in concrete. Brief maturation in stainless steel.
