    *8W* 2020 Francois Villard "Les Contours de Deponcins” Viognier (Rhone Valley, FR)

    This classic and lovely expression Rhone Viognier comes to us from Francois Villard, a chef-turned-winemaker! Fermented and aged in oak, this Viognier features tropical fruit and floral notes, with a bready undertone (from fermentation in oak) and a playful minerality. Given Francois's culinary roots, it's no surprise that this wine pairs well with some of our favorite foods. For something fun, sip this with some spicy Thai food!>

    About The Varietal

    Viognier

    Viognier, synonymous with the northern Rhône, is a versatile grape that plays a dual role, not only as a white wine grape but also blended with Syrah in red wines. When crafted as a varietal wine, Viognier produces golden-colored, aromatic white wines characterized by pronounced stone fruit aromas, with apricots and peaches commonly noted. The wines are known for their full-bodied and often textural palate. However, Viognier is susceptible to high alcohol levels and may exhibit low levels of freshening acidity.
