    November 15, 2020 - Served it a bit on the cold side and the flavors certainly came out more and more as it opened up. It was very well balanced. A bit more round than some of the Viognier we've had of late, but has acid. Good white flowers and honey character. Enjoyable wine.

    September 7, 2020 - Tasted double-blind. The nose showed white flowers; sort of a mix of magnolia, jasmine and citrus blossom. The palate came across off-dry with some potential residual sugar. Pastilles and honeysuckle. I thought this was well balanced and seemed to have higher acid. My call was a Chenin Blanc; a Vouvray, demi-sec from a recent vintage. Obviously, I was way off. I’m told the relatively higher ABV in these wines, plus the fact that they are made in stainless steel, give the perception of higher acid. Anyway, it’s nice to drink Viognier that tastes like this. Now I wish I had a dozen oysters!

    September 11, 2019 - Light on the palate, but with flavor and acidity dancing with each other all the time. Long in the finish, perfect match with fish.

    May 27, 2019 - Disappointing after Christophe Blanc Las Vallins (and also twice the price). Pleasant, lacking depth and length. Hints of violets and roses on the the nose to disappear in to a boiled sweet palette.
