Tasting:

    Chilled before drinking. Clear, wheat straw color. Fresh lavender, pine and moist forest floor aromas. Mouthfeel that was smooth, lively, with just the slightest touch of creaminess, medium to full body and a 400-grit texture. Herbal flavors intertwined with lemon, honey and cretaceous minerals. Vibrant crisp acidity and a very, very long Viognier dominated finish. This was very distinctive white wine. It was good with the chicken and was noteworthy sipping without food after the dinner. We thought we could identify the honey from the Viognier, the soft green apple in the Grenache Blanc and the herbal Roussanne flavors. We both said it had huge complexity and an aroma that went on forever. A very unique and sensational white wine from grapes grown in the south of France.
