Chateau Cazal Viel Chardonnay Viognier

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

The wines of Cazal Viel amply demonstrate why the Languedoc is to some the most exciting wine region on earth. Here, the Viognier reaches an apogee rarely attained elsewhere. The mission of the Miquel family is to make wines that epitomise the character and complexity of the terroir. They have owned the property for over 200 years. Their philosophy underpins everything they do: top class vineyard maintenance using natural methods, ensuring very low yields on all the vines; scrupulous attention to detail at harvest-time and individual vinification of each of their 92 parcels. Grapes : 65% Chardonnay, 35% Viognier Region : France / Languedoc Maker : Laurent Miquel Notes : Characterised by deep aromas of white peaches and citrus fruits, this chardonnay viognier is a superb entrance into the wonderful flavours available from the Viognier grape. Evident on the palate are the influences of the early harvested, unoaked Chardonnay with its clean white fruit flavours and crisp lemons joining harmoniously with the viogniers rich apricot fruit ABV : 13.00%
