2018 Laurence de Veyrac, Viognier, Sélection Parcellaire, Pays d’Oc, France
£11.95 £9.95 per bottle
I cannot believe the value afforded here because this is a highly complex wine with a modest and engaging approach on the palate. The Viognier perfume is bright and accurate but not too tropical or imposing, making it a joy. Gentle fennel and wildflower notes mingle with crystalline honey touches and unripe peach skin. This beguiling white is akin to a summer stroll through the Languedoc countryside. Simply gorgeous with fresh fish and seafood dishes, particularly if you are using aromatic veg, garlic, scented herbs or saffron in your recipe.
