Domaine de L'Olibet 'Les Cabrides'

Viognier, 2014

France Provence & Regional White

Pays d'Oc 75cl

Sample; as some may know, Viognier is not my preferred tipple but I can still smell a good 'un. For all wines/grapes, balance is a must but it becomes even more required with grapes like Viognier that are very prone to phenolics and over ripeness. Fortunately this new wine has excellent balance without losing the essence of the grape. Their is richness and an almost oily texture on the palate with spicy and ripe pear fruit with some citrus peel, and a dash of peach. The nose is relatively restrained and only exhibits the merest hint of honeysuckle (phew!). Excellent minerality throughout.
