Rich and unctuous. The wine shows some oak and a super full bodied texture. Not for everyone but a benchmark for its style.

Very unusual. 100% new oak but the Viognier handles it!

14' E Guigal La Doriane Condrieu. An outstanding Viognier! A wine you can just sip on a hot summers day. Welcoming guests & family as they arrive to your home. From appetizers/lunch/dinner. It's one of the most versatile varietals. (my opinion) I can smell & taste so many things in this FULL-BODIED wine. PEACHES/floral/perfumed nose. On the palate I get tangerine, peach, honey, medium oak. A little spice & well balanced acidity/minerality throughout the class. Everything I could want in a great Viognier. The Somm thinks the 13' is drinking better now? I'm certain he's right. The 14' is tasting absolutely delicious tonight. A little more time in the bottle, might be beneficial. (Just another thought ) California Viognier's often criticized for not having enough minerality to it ? Okay ...I can still love them all!!
