Viognier

“Jougla have long been an establish wine-making family. There have been Jougla in the village of Prades-sur-Vernazobre since at least 1595, but you sense that the family has moved with the times. They now have an efficient modern cellar on the outskirts of the village. The old foudres are no longer used and instead there are some newer and smaller barriques. They were one of the first in the appellation to invest in a pneumatic press. And their first bottling date back to 1978, at a time when most people were selling in bulk to the négociants. In 2009 they began the conversion to organic viticulture. Alain remains very much involved, but it is now his daughter, Lauren, ably assisted by her brother Alexandre, who make the wine from their 30 hectares estate. Lauren has worked in Chile for Canepa and with Kingston Estate in the Murray River in Australia.”

About This Wine...

Beautifully aromatic, peaches, apricots and honeysuckle. Good concentration of fruit on the palate with that very special almond finish which is unique to Viognier grown in this area. Full bodied and opulent, but very elegant.

“Lightly peachy. Very good fruit and varietal character. Nice concentration with a firm streak of structure.”
