Côtes du Rhône Viognier, Domaine Les Grands Bois 2019
The viognier grape, difficult to grow successfully like pinot noir, but potentially as wonderful, nearly disappeared in the 70s. Now hugely fashionable - its highest expression Condrieu. I cannot live without this lovely white wine!
"May be the finest value in Viognier that I have ever tasted" Robert Parker
"The 2018 Domaine Les Grands Bois 'Le Viognier' is from an estate that FVDs Esme Johnstone found quite by chance while in a café in Cairanne. So smitten was he by what he was drinking that le patron took him to the family-owned winery on the outskirts of the village and Esme spent a merry few hours tasting the range before flashing his chequebook and buying pretty much everything on offer. And who wouldn't be seduced by this gorgeously heady, peachy, apricotty and yet refreshing white? I love it and you will too." (previous vintage) - Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine
