Expert Reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2014)88 pts

Oct 2015. Reviewer : Jeb Dunnock - Seeing just partial malolactic and aging mostly in tank (there's a small part in barrel), the 2014 Viognier VDP d'Orange has solid Viognier character in its citrus blossom, peach, and honey-like aromas and flavors. Possessing good acidity, medium-bodied richness and a clean, dry finish, it will be versatile on the dinner table and drink nicely for 2-3 years.

Web Only 2015 - Plump, flattering style, with a very forward core of yellow apple and white peach flavors with nicely integrated brioche and blanched almond hints on the finish.
