Château de Saint-Cosme "Les Deux Albion" Principauté-d'Orange Viognier Picpoul 2017

Ratings on Delectable

Timothy Lynch

Here's the mix: 50% Viognier; 30% Picpoul; 20% Marsanne. This is a food wine! No sipping nonsense. (Matched it with Chicken Marabella.) Lots of white flowers, surprising acidity (my guess the Picpoul), but no idea where that salinity comes from. Limestone terroir? I paid $20 for a very interesting wine. You'll have to decide if the dollar journey is worth it. With food 8.8. Otherwise 8.7.
