Viognier - 2013, Domaine Pierre-Belle, Côteaux de Béziers

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

This white wine has a good quality/price ratio. It is a soft wine with a light typical viognier nose, mingling notes of white flowers, pear and almonds with a very pleasant finish. I particularly appreciate theroundness of this wine, not so common for wines from this price range. I advise you to taste it with friends, paired with a light meal.  

 

Terroir

Located in the north of Béziers, the vineyard of 60 hectares of Pierre-Belle grows on clay-limestone slopes exposed to the Mediterranean sun. This is an ideal location for the viognier, that requires regular sunshine exposureto express all its aromas, along with a poor limestone ground for its roots development.

lecepage Grape variety

Viognier is a vigorous grape variety that almost disappeared during the 20th century! Originally from northern Rhone, itsuffered a lot from both phylloxera and the First World War: in 1965,there were only 8 small hectares of viognier remaining...! Today, this variety spreads all over the world, especially in California where it is highly appreciated. What a beautiful come back!

lemillesime Vintage

Viognier grape expresses its aromas quickly; this is why you should not hesitate to enjoy it while it’s young! The 2013 vintage is known for having been difficult for winemakers of France but the AOCs Languedoc-Roussillon were rather spared, including the coast of Béziers. 

lerecoltant A Winemaker, a family

The team currently managing the winery has opted for organic methods that result in a good soil conservation and a limited use of pesticides. Only 4 to 6 treatments of the vines per year are necessary, while the average in the French vineyards is 16 per year !
