Origin

This Viognier is designated a Pays d’Oc Protected Geographical Indication wine. The particular character of this wine is derived from its region of origin, the Languedoc, whose climate is predominantly Mediterranean with very hot, dry summers and mild autumns, winters and springs. This grape variety produces smooth, well-built and aromatic wines.

Vinification

The grapes are chilled before pressing. Low-temperature fermentation helps to create a concentration of primary aromas. Part of the wine is then aged in barrels imparting a slightly buttery aroma.
