A star of a wine
There are now plantings of the Viognier grape worldwide but this grape’s spiritual homeland is in Condrieu in the Northern Rhone – where the finest Viogniers are produced. The wines are dry with a wonderful floral nose of peaches, apricots, violets and pears, and quite alcoholic, with low-ish acidity.
The Francois Villard Viognier `Les Contours de Deponcins` wine comes from a vineyard lying next to a vineyard that produces some of the finest wines of the appellation. Condrieu in all but name this has a classic rich and complex nose with aromas and flavours of peach, apricot and wild flowers.
Drink on its own as an aperitif or with grilled white fish, ham and lighter pork dishes.
