Laurent Miquel is based at Château Cazal Viel, the Miquel family estate in the Saint Chinian appellation, South of France. The superb terroir of Cazal Viel was first planted by Roman warriors, the ruins of their villas and an ancient well still stand on the grounds of the estate. For almost 6 centuries (from 1202) the monks of the local Abbaye de Fontcaude crafted their wine at Cazal Viel. Since 1791, eight generations of the Miquel family have worked the vines of their estate high in Languedoc hills. Father to Son, harvest after harvest, they deepen their knowledge of the fickle nature of the vines that grow here and learn to work in harmony with nature.                           Read less

Slightly spicy, honeyed aromas with good floral notes. Nice and juicy, a little oily with a touch of cream, this wine is just enough bite to grab hold of and enough fruit to keep it interesting. For 14 bucks it's a great value.

Bottom line: Rich, luscious, and delicious. Milk chocolate and tropical fruit with whipped cream on top mingle with pineapple and lime. The sweet, delicate finish turns into pink and orange fruits on the palate. Clearly, this grape has an affinity for oak and late summer nights. A+!

Very floral Viognier from Languedoc. Excellent warm weather wine. Lots of fresh cut flowers, lime, lemon and a very crisp acidity make me want to sit on the back porch and throw back a few glasses of this.

Laurent Miquel produces his signature aromatic Viognier from selected blocks of mature, naturally low yielding vines at his family estate. Vines are planted in the optimum North-South orientation meaning that the grapes are exposed the gentle warmth of the morning and evening rays but protected from the burning effects of the midday sun. This ensures the conservation of good acidity levels while the grapes mature gently and evenly. Viognier is still quite rare despite its recent resurgence in popularity. It is a difficult grape to grow and gives a very small yield of berries with highly concentrated aromas and flavors. This is a deliciously perfumed opulent wine with characteristic aromas of white flowers and wild peaches. On the palate it is elegant with delicate apricot and orange blossom but also some citrus characters. Enjoy as an aperitif or pair with lobster or crayfish salads or spicy oriental cuisine. 13.5% abv.

"This pungent dry white just oozes tropical fruit flavours. The influence of oak gives the wine a nice rounded and soft texture making it an ideal partner to spicy crab cakes, or try it with sushi."
