Viognier

Viognier is an aromatic grape variety known for producing textural white wines with strong stone-fruit flavors. On the nose Viognier wines can be very floral, showing lavender and pollen aromas that are quite honeyed in sweeter examples. Apricots are the variety’s classic flavor association, often with a richness that can be interpreted as ripe peach

    Condrieu: Chaillées d'Enfer 2009

    "The 2009 Condrieu Les Chaillees de l’Enfer reveals less minerality in addition to wonderfully succulent, opulent white peach, apricot and honeysuckle characteristics and an explosive perfume of spring flowers and ripe fruit.

It drinks wonderfully well from release but will keep for up to 20 years in all but the lighter vintages. Bring on the quenelles!
