A few words
ABOUT THIS WINE
An intense Viognier with aromas of ripe stone fruits and fruit floral undertones. Discreet hints of toast, vanilla and sweet spices from ageing in oak barrels. Full-bodied and medium alcohol with moderate acidity, creamy texture and pronounced flavours typical to Viognier of apricot, peach and honey.

should i keep it?
No. Most Viogniers won’t gain much complexity with ageing but instead will lose their fresh fruit flavours. This wine has not enough acidity for ageing and should be enjoyed young and fresh.
serving temperature
8-9°C. Most white wines will not benefit from being served too chilled as some aromas might be lost. However Viognier – with intensely fruity aromas – is the exception that proves the rule and will definitely benefit from being served well chilled. If served too warm, the wine might taste a little flabby.
Why we have
SELECTED THIS WINE
Over the years, Yves Cuilleron has established a reputation as one of the most reliable producers of two of the best known appellations of the Norther Rhône: Côte-Rôtie and Condrieu.
Alongside these premium wines, Yves Cuilleron also produces a wide range of wines - most of the based on Syrah and Viognier.
"Les Vignes d'à-côté" - which is French for "the nearby vineyards' - is made from vines located just outside the Condrieu designated area. Hand-picked and produced with the same care as the estate's top wines, this Viognier is a beautiful example of Yves Cuilleron's rich but balanced style.
