Domaine des Miquettes

Viognier Chasselas - 2018 - Paul Estève

An orange wine with powerful notes of bergamot, citron, aniseed, and cut grass... Palate: surprising texture, there is none of the tannic, even astringent character that you often see with this kind of vinification. Lovely bitter notes. A captivating cuvée that will leave no one indifferent!
