Maison Les Alexandrins Viognier - 2017

Maison Les Alexandrins Viognier - 2017

An elegant, fresh and aromatic wine, the perfect accompaniment for your aperitifs.
Description

An entry level white wine. We chose the Viognier variety because it is aromatic and brings great minerality. This wine offers immediate pleasure and will be perfect with aperitifs to accompany your seafood amuse-bouche.

Terroir

The wine is produced from vines planted at altitude, mainly on the Coteaux d’Ardèche.

The vintage

After the historically dry and hot summer, the wines give an impression of opulence, concentration and generosity. Ageing will allow the wines to soften and slowly find their balance.

Process

Fermentation and ageing takes place in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures. The idea is to preserve the freshness and aromatics of the wine. Bottling takes place in the spring.

Tasting notes

Beautiful yellow dress with slightly golden highlights. The nose is rich, subtly mixing notes of white fruit, yellow fruit and citrus (pineapple, peach, pear and apricot). The palate is balanced between freshness and volume and offers a beautiful aromatic complexity. Its finish is long, with a hint of lemon zest.

Serving

Drink young to 2 years. 12°C.

Grapes

Viognier : 100 %

Decanter

From vines located mainly around the Coteaux d’Ardèche, this 100% Viognier delivers plenty of rounded apricot and citrus notes. 2017 was a sunny vintage for these vines, but this keeps a core of freshness despite the concentration of flavour, and it doesn’t feel as heavy as some Viogniers at this low price point. Great value, full of pleasure.
