    Warmer growing regions, fully ripened grapes, extended barrel-aging add to the wine’s body

    2021 Domaine Graeme & Julie Bott "First Flight" Viognier (Rhone Valley, FR) 6W

    From their younger vines in Condrieu, this wine serves as an excellent introduction to Viognier from its top region. Its aromas and flavors exhibit intense purity and depth, featuring abundant sweet floral notes and ripe stone fruit, reminiscent of summer. The texture is exquisite, displaying a clarity, livliness, and precision akin to Riesling, coupled with an unusually pronounced stony minerality uncommon to Viognier. Enjoyable immediately, this is a wine easy to appreciate.

    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.
