Domaine de Luc Viognier

$23.54

Deeply connected to the land of southwestern France, the Fabre family have grown grapes and made wines in Languedoc since 1605. The family business today includes five estates and is managed by Louis Fabre, who is joined by his daughters and niece: Clémence, Paule and Jeanne. The five estates – Grande Courtade, Tour de Rieux, Château Coulon, Château de Luc, and Château Fabre Gasparets – allow Louis to work with a broad range of terroirs and grape varieties. A history building with cellars that date back to the 1300’s, Château de Luc is the family’s base of operations and where they live full time. Across all estates the vines are farmed according to organic principles.

Viognier is typically low in acidity, so harvesting the grapes at the right time of the day is crucial. For the Domaine de Luc Viognier, the grapes were harvested from terraced vineyards during the cool hours of the night and brought to the winery where they were slowly pressed off the skins. Vinified and aged in temperature controlled tanks, the wine was kept on the lees and stirred daily.

This wine from Domaine de Lucis is a textbook example of southern French Viognier. Pale gold in the glass, on the nose it displays perfumed aromas of marshmallow, nougat, apricot, honeysuckle, vanilla, and nutmeg. The palate is medium bodied with crisp peachey flavors. On the dry finish you find a touch of almond bitterness.
