But let's go back to the vineyard!
Viognier vines are almost 20 years old and are growing in the Barleith vineyard near Cabernet. A perfect area for this grape variety.
We are at an altitude of 300 m above sea level on a slightly inclined terrace facing south-east. The view is beautiful and the microclimate benefits from the proximity of the lake. The soil is very rich in limestone gravel and completed by clay and sand.
The favorable exposure and the daily breezes allow you to choose the best time for the harvest, and to choose the best bunches with perfectly ripe grapes.
The unexpected Viognier
LeViogn is a 100% Viognier. Only in rare cases, in those vintages where there is less grape, can there be a small balance of Sauvignon Blanc. Just enough to fill the barrel. Yes, because LeViogn is vinified in large barrels. Here it is enriched and develops its spontaneous stability by remaining on the noble lees for at least 10 months before going into the bottle. It then ages in the cellar for a few months before being made available.
