Tasting Notes: This Viognier is exotic and lush with flavors of white peach and yellow plum. There is beautiful acidity on the palate keeping it fresh and clean with some minerality and loaminess on the finish. Pair with a prawn salad.
Winemaking Notes: The vines, ranging in age between 40 and 60 years old, are cultivated in accordance with the laws of Terra Vitis, an organization that ensures that properties respect the environment in which the vines are grown and stresses the benefits of integrated farming. The bottlings are created exclusively from estate grown fruit and see no wood before bottling to ensure that the vibrancy of the fruit of this area shines through. The vineyard sites are all at high altitudes in the mountains of Luberon and as such, produce wines with good acidity and bright fruit as opposed to the more dense and rich bottlings coming from the valley floor.
About: Le Paradou is a young project created in conjunction with Frederic Chaudiere whose family produces some of the most respected wines in the Southern Rhone AOC of Cotes du Ventoux. Sourced from two properties whose raw material is quite unique, the wines carry the name of the centuries-old farmhouse, Le Paradou, belonging to Frederic's family.
