Tasting Notes

Condrieu is considered the best Viognier wine but it can be very expensive. To find a wine like Condrieu with a lower price tag, I looked no further than Domaine Jean-François Jacouton whose Condrieu I also stock. Known as an Artisan du Terroir”, Jean-François took over his grandfather’s 6 hectares of vineyards, concentrating, for his white wines, on freshness and minerality from the granitic soils with which Viognier in particular has an affinity.

 

In hotter climate areas Viognier can be a bit OTT with exotic fruit flavours and an oily texture but in the Rhone’s hilly sub-region, Collines Rhodaniennes, flavours, whilst complex and more delicate, as they are in this wine lean towards subtle stone fruits like apricots and peaches with lime and there are hints of blossom and spice. The texture is silky. The complexity and texture are partly due to the brief time that the wine spends on its lees, the complex flavours and aromas in perfect harmony. The wine has a dry, crisp, fresh finish leaving you wanting more!

Food Pairing

Recommended for drinking with oysters, other shellfish and fish generally.  It also matches well with herb-based dishes, roast chicken, creamy sauces, mild curries, Middle-Eastern and Thai cuisine, tagines, sweet potatoes, parsnips, butternut squash and creamy cheeses. Or just pour and enjoy a glass on its own!

  • Serve at: 10 – 12oC

Producer's Notes

“Crystal color. A floral nose of jasmin, mango and apricot jam. A fresh mouth with exotic fruit and apri­cot aromas, with a beautiful finish of white fruits and toasted notes.”
