Chene Bleu Vaucluse Viognier 2015

Viognier from France - Rhone
Review Date : 23-Apr-2018
Bright, golden-yellow colour with some depth, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is elegantly presented with softly concentrated, ripe fruit aromas of apricots and yellow stonefruits, along with savoury apricot kernels, nutty elements and suggestions of earthy complexities. Yellow floral and citrus zest nuances emerge to add detail. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has vibrant and lively fruit flavours of apricots and yellow stonefruits entwined with yellow florals, savoury stonefruit kernels, nutty elements and a hint of earth. The fruit possesses a degree of opulence. The palate has plenty of energy and poise, and is underlined by some alcohol drive, with fresh acidity lending vibrancy. The wine flows along a smooth line, leading to an elegant finish of stonefruits, florals and nuts. This is a vibrant and lively, well-concentrated and flavoursome dry Viognier with apricot, stonefruit, kernel and nutty notes on a well-driven palate. Match with Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine over the next 3+ years. 100% Viognier from 13 y.o. vines in Vaucluse, Southern Rhone, fermented to 14.0% alc. and 2.7 g/L RS, the wine aged 7 months in oak. 18.5/20 Apr 2018 RRP $69.90
