M. Chapoutier 2017 IGP Collines Rhodaniennes La Combe Pilate Viognier

Description

"Bright peach and apricot flavors burst forth, with light fennel and green almond hints trailing through on the finish. The minimal toast allows the deliciously exuberant fruit to shine." Wine Spectator 91 Points

"Pale yellow. Bright and lively on the nose, displaying mineral-inflected citrus and orchard fruit scents and a subtle floral nuance. Dry and penetrating on the palate, offering juicy Meyer lemon and Anjou pear flavors and a hint of succulent herbs. The floral note comes back on the dry, focused finish, which leaves behind a trace of dusty minerals." Josh Raynolds 90 Points

"Grown on the mixed-use farm where Michel Chapoutier lives, the 2017 IGP Collines Rhodaniennes La Combe Pilate Viognier features aromas of struck flint, floral notes, hints of tobacco and fresh apricot. Only medium-bodied, it's fresh, lively and varietally distinct, with a fast-fading finish." Robert Parker 89 Points
