Domaine de la Janasse Viognier Vin de Pays de la Principaute dOrange 2017 (1x 75cl)

This cuvée stems from a unique pebble terroir on the edge of the appellation of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, a short distance from the La Crau plateau. It is made only using Viognier. The vines are grown without pesticides or insecticides and manure is natural. The land is worked without herbicide to maintain ventilation and flexibility to the soil. Yields are around of 50 hl/ha.

Grapes are pneumatically pressing and macerated in vat. The wine is aged on its lees, 60% in vat and 40% in barriques (25% new) for 6 months.

As the Domaine says, "a well-born Viognier, with strong personality, very fresh but with the southern muscle". Ideal for an aperitif or a mesclun salad and scallops. Serve within the next three years.The nose is fresh, fruity and aromatic, with ripe tropical and dried fruit characteristics. The palate is medium bodied with a succulent texture, balanced alcohol and acidity and a great concentration of dried fruit flavours, such as apricot and peach, with a honeyed, silky finish. This an IGP Viognier of impeccable breeding.
