External Reviews for Jean-Luc Colombo Viognier Côtes du Rhône la Violette
Wine Enthusiast ReviewA highly perfumed wine, with flowery aromas. Full of pear and other ripe fruit flavors, it is a fat, food-friendly wine with just a touch of acidity. Great value for a Viognier.Wine Tasting NotesBrilliant, light straw. The nose offers intense aromas of acacia, yellow peaches and exotic fruits. Very elegant and harmonious, its freshness allows the fruit to fully develop.
