Domaine Pichat, Viognier, Vin de France, France, 2016
(at The Prince’s Room, Middle Temple, London, 01 Nov 2017)
Drinking Window: 2018 - 2020
This Viognier, from schistous soils in the northern Rhône, has a beautifully exotic character bursting with apricots and cream. In the mouth, it's juicy and round, with an intense core of dried apricot and mango alongside woody notes and a savoury hint. A streak of fresh salinity finishes this wine off perfectly.
