The Viognier grape has its origins in the northern Rhône region, but it appears to do more than excellently in the Languedoc. Moreover, there are also many wine drinkers today who are looking for alternatives to the ubiquitous Chardonnay. The soft wines based on Viognier from the French south prove to be an attractive and affordable alternative. This grape produces delicious full and juicy wines here, with tropical fruit and a nice supple character. The grapes come from vineyards around the cities of Narbonne, Beziers and Montpellier, from the members of the Vignerons du Narbonnais cooperative, the dynamic cave of Narbonne and surroundings. The fine clay soils of these vineyards produce a wonderfully soft wine, bursting with tropical fruit.
The Dumanet Viognier has a pale straw yellow color in the glass. Powerful in the nose, pleasant apricots, acacia blossom, almonds, fine white fruit, broad and complex. In the mouth the wine is full bodied and aromatic as befits the Viognier grape. Soft and lush, little fat, nice and smooth and soft white.
FACT : The label depicts 2 cycling men, reminiscent of the beautiful bike rides through the vineyards. The winemaker used to cycle through the vineyards with the idea of making a top wine out of this one day, well, he succeeded so many years later.
