Fruity/aromatic - VIOGNIER, Martin Clerc. Collines Rhodaniennes

2020 VIOGNIER, Martin Clerc. Collines Rhodaniennes

Bin: 142
Alcohol Percentage: 14.5%
Size of bottle: 75cl
Grape Variety: 100% Viognier, fermented and matured in a mixture of stainless steel and older oak barrels.
Producer: Well summarised by their US agent:
"Domaine Martin Clerc is based in Les Roches de Condrieu, a village in the Northern Rhône Valley near famous Condrieu. Martin's father, Louis, founded the estate in 1990 where they produce Côte Rôtie and Condrieu on the high slopes and Collines Rhôdaniennes in the foothills. After Louis passed away in 2013, Martin, who was in wine school with Paul at the University of Suze la Rousee, took over and renamed the estate.
High on the hillsides, their vineyards are organized in terraces, with short rows of vines planted together on small platforms. Here, a vineyard can be composed of up to 100 terraces held up by ancient stone walls. The yield of the vines is controlled by thinning fruit to get the best and most concentrated flavors in the wine."
Old Bridge Rating: This is a lusciously rich Viognier, but not weighed down by any oak. A white wine with the body and intensity of a red, and able to do the same job with food. This will stand up to almost any dish, particularly anything including egg, dairy or tahini.
