Pays d’Oc Viognier 2016

IGP Pays d'Oc White


The colour is bright, pale straw with a delicate green hue. Confirming the freshness of this vintage, the nose shows white flowers, kiwi and citrus. The palate is clean yet creamy thanks to stirring of the lees, showing white peach and verbena notes. Long and fresh on the finish.

Detailed information


In 2016, there was an early beginning to the vegetative cycle due to the particularly warm Winter. Spring cooled down somewhat and slowed the growth cycle. The Summer that followed turned out to be one of the driest on record. The vineyards however had good ground water levels and were able to develop nicely along with good vineyard management. With a smaller than usual crop, the quality was remarkable, with terrific balance between the fruit and the acidity.

Grape varieties



Viognier grapes come primarily from the village of Florensac (Hérault department) on clay and loam soils in plains and hills of limestone rocks conferring roundness to the wines; plots on stony soils of limestone and flint clays in the Gard department complete the selection with great finesse


Harvest at optimum maturity. Cold prefermentary maceration in the press for 4 hours, then slow fermentation at low temperature (12/14°C) with stirring of the fine lees during 4 months.
