Food Pairings for Alain Paret Côtes du Rhône Valvigneyre
Bright straw hue, aromas of exotic stone fruits and almonds; bright flavor notes of Asian Pear, white Peach and citrus, dancing over the palate for a focused, lengthy finish. Great value for 100% Viognier from the Northern Rhone.
Located in the northernmost part of the Rhône valley, 50 km south of Lyon, the vineyards of Alain Paret are southeast facing and planted on steep, uneven slopes. The soil is fairly homogeneous and is made up of schists and granite. It is shallow, light, permeable and warm. In the Pays d'Oc, north of the town of Sète, Alain Paret selected the Languedoc hillsides, similar in terms of ground and climate to his own estate, to grow his chosen grape varieties. Alain Paret created his estate in 1972. He plants Syrah and Viognier grapes for the region's typical wine productions: St Joseph and Condrieu. With 37 hectares of vineyards, he produces 1630 hectolitres of appellation wine. Over the years, he has fine-tuned his working techniques and come to offer high quality products, both in terms of appellation wines and Vin de Pays. This blend is made from the fruit of several slopes, and benefits from the very mild climate specific to the Côtes du Rhône. The production undergoes a rigorous selection process that allows us to obtain a brilliant wine with a rich bouquet and myriad aromas. With its rich and beautiful colour, it can be drunk young or left to age for several years. It gives notes of red fruit, raspberries and redcurrant, spices and blackcurrant.
