Le Paradou Viognier 2013

paradu

Simple and easy drinking, this is a fun, budget friendly, Viognier from the Languedoc.

Winery: Le Paradou is a project created in 2005 by winemaking brothers Alexandre and Frédéric Chaudière. The Chaudière family has been making wine in the Southern Rhône AOC of Côtes du Ventoux for many generations at Château Pesquié. The word ‘Paradou’ refers to the ancient windmills that once dotted the landscape of the Languedoc.

Philosophy: One of the goals the brothers have with the Le Paradou range is to infuse the wines with the values of living in the south of France; “These pleasures are pure and simple, they are those of sharing and of enjoying the small pleasures in life”.

Winemaking: The Chaudières practice sustainable, integrated farming methods with an emphasis on respect for the environment, and they do not use any chemical fertilizers or pesticides. This Viognier was hand harvested from high altitude vineyards and fermented in stainless steel.

Tasting Notes: Straw yellow in colour with vibrant aromas of peach, grapefruit and rain-washed minerals. Touches of honey framed red apple and pear flavours, whilst grapefruit notes comprised the dry, zippy finish.
