A bold and expressive viognier showing ripe peach and pear notes allied to full body and a savoury, refreshing finish. Fine viognier is a real treat and a break from the more mainstream varieties which many enjoy day-to day. It's a devil of a grape to grow, but wholly rewarding when you find a good example, and your always in safe hands with Chapoutier.

"Full-bodied, particularly rich and concentrated for an IGP Viognier. Really powerfully flavoured, with fresh grape, lychee and citrus. The alcohol might be on the high side, but this is long, flavoursome and delicious. Slightly oily texture, not quite as fine as a typical Condrieu but lots of impact and good value. Aged in stainless steel tanks for nine months before release with light lees stirring. Drink to 2024." 91 points, Decanter (previous vintage).

Classic viognier from a rhone master. This is a great example of deep viognier at excellent value.

Excellent value viognier, with peach and pear flavours, but with acid to keep it sharp.

Producer Information - Michel Chapoutier
Producer Information - Michel Chapoutier

The Chapoutier family motto ‘Fac et Spera’ – do and hope – sums up their patient and daring approach to winemaking. Michel Chapoutier’s distant ancestor Polydor Chapoutier first bought vines in the Rhône Valley in 1808, and today history and tradition abound at this vast estate that stretches from Côte Rôtie in the north, to Costières de Nîmes and Luberon in the south.

The M.Chapoutier vineyards in the very best sites of the Rhône represent the quintessence of the range and with Michel at the helm since 1988, quality has been consistently very high. Michel Chapoutier’s continual pursuit of great terroir took him south from the Rhône to the Roussillon in 2000, where he bought land in the village of Latour de France, known for its stony soil terraces and rich geological heritage.
