2018 Viognier, Domaine de La Baume, Pays d'Oc
If I had to pick one white from Mr.Wheeler’s range to get me through the challenges of lockdown, it would quite probably be this viognier – which has very much become my house white. I have just re-tasted the newly arrived 2018, and it really is a glorious wine – absolutely bursting with flavour and freshness at only £9.75 when you buy a case.
If you don’t know viognier, it somehow manages to combine the best bits of sauvignon and chardonnay, with the freshness and aromatic style of the former, and the richness and texture of the latter. It used to be made in minuscule quantities just in the Rhône valley, but is now grown the world over, and does particularly well in the sun-drenched deep South of France.
Domaine La Baume is based in Pezenas, way down in the Languedoc, and have really got this viognier just right – it has such expressive perfume, luscious freshness, and an almost honeyed opulence – it is definitely one of the best drinking examples around and is a delicious change from ‘the usual suspects’.

This famous grape from the Rhône Valley has become a favourite with warm climate producers. It thrives in the heat producing wines that are generally high in alcohol and acidity. Good examples have a powerful, aromatic aroma bursting with flowers and stone fruits and on the palate are weighty and mouthfilling.
Today you will find quality Viogniers being produced throughout Southern France and Spain, California, Australia and South America.
