I quite liked this wine. It managed to highlight the best elements of Viognier, and avoid the worst.
Lovely nose, with good floral and fruit characters mingling, and avoiding the over-the-top cheap perfume that some Viognier can show. Plump in the body, and the aromatics follow into the taste, rounding out with a little honey; good to find a V. that doesn't fade and flatten in the middle. Discernible acidity in the middle and especially the finish, managing to give the wine some backbone yet avoid the bitterness at the the finish that less attentive winemaking can bring. Kudos to Michel and Stephane. Viognier is still not my favored variety, but this is a pretty darned good example of how to make a good one.
(Nice bottle too. Aesthetically appealing and suits the nature and style of the wine inside._ A Robert Kacher Selection. At $27 retail, I wouldn't buy too much of this. But I'll be happy to drink it when I'm over at Yaniger's house.)
