Viognier Vin de Pays Domaine Jean-Michel Gerin Bottle 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Condrieu, the spiritual homestead of Viognier, is a minute appellation which<br/>produces some now-gloriously expensive wines. Just to the west, a little<br/>further from the great River, some vineyards, which, to the untrained eye, are<br/>exactly the same, yet classified as Vin de Pays des Collines Rhodaneans. Jean<br/>Michel's wine does not see oak, but shares the viscosity and indulgent<br/>peachy richness of his Condrieu. Fuller bodied and longer en bouche than the<br/>Coudoulet, this would work well with crab salad or vegetable terrine. (Simon<br/>Field, MW, BBR Buyer) <br/>

One of the worst white wines I have ever tasted. Sickly sweet initial taste gives way to a nasty chalky grittiness which stays around. Horrible.
