Description

Pays d’Oc Viognier 2017 Fontareche white wine

Variety: Viognier 100%

Chateau Fontareche is located in the extreme south of France, almost on the border with Spain. Very close to Lèzignan Corbières, almost halfway between Carcassonne, and Narbonne.

The estate covers 200 hectares, all around the Chateau.

The climate is very arid, with rare rainfall. The conditions are extreme and at the same time ideal for the development of grapes, reduced in quantity, but high quality value.

After harvesting, ferments in stainless steel containers at controlled temperature. In the same containers it is refined for at least 6 months.

Pays d’Oc Viognier 2017 Fontareche white wine

Pale straw-yellow color with subtle green shades.

The nose has clear and precise aromas, white flowers, white peach and apricot. Turning the glass also reveals the exotic fruit and some ideas of aromatic herbs. Overall, the olfactory prospect is intense and of great quality.

On the palate it is adorably balanced, with perceptible hardness, in the single expressions of acidity and minerality. From the faction of softness we tell of a valuable creaminess and a good warmth expressed by the alcohol level. In the retro olfation aromas of white peach, almond and exotic fruit. Persistent the memory that leaves.

Surprising wine, for the class and accuracy. It has great ability to evolve over time, improving for at least five years. Incredible value for money.

It goes very well with asparagus dishes, goat’s cheese, and scallops, like those out of the shell cooked on the stone, like those au gratin, with garlic and parsley butter.
