The Superb 2011 François Villard, Viognier


Earlier this month Jenn and I spent several days drinking through a bottle of the 2011 François Villard, Viognier, Les Contours de Deponcins.  It proved excellent glass after glass.  Thanks to my mom, another bottle appeared for our tailgate party at the International Gold Cup.  At the end of the races there was one full glass left in the bottle so I took it back home.  This last glass was superb even after the bottle had been open for ten hours and driven down to Virginia and back.   From the color to the nose to the mouth I liked this bottle even more.   I highly recommend that you try this wine. This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2011 François Villard, Viognier, Les Contours de Deponcins – $25
Imported by Elite Wine Imports.  This wine is 100% Viognier which has been aged in both wood and stainless steel.  Alcohol 12.5%.  The color was a yellow gold.  The nose revealed generous tropical white fruits without any heaviness.  The mouth follows the nose but is immediately more serious with focus, grip, and integrated acidity.  The ripe yellow fruit builds to the finish where spices come out.  It leaves ripe texture on the gums followed by a racy aftertaste with salivating acidity.  **** Now-2018.
