2019 Domaine Preignes Le Neuf Viognier, Coteaux de Beziers, France
£11.95 £10.75 per bottle
I remember a column I wrote many moons ago which stated, ‘Don’t buy Viognier without me.’ I like fewer than 5% of Viogniers that I taste each year, because this grape is a shocker in the wrong hands – fat, oily, confected, greasy and clumsy are various crimes levelled against this grape. Preignes Le Neuf is spot on with a terrific, invigorating perfume, a slender chassis and a crisp finish. Less is way more, and this wine is a superstar with a tiny price tag.
