      Tasting Notes
      Domaine Jean-Michel Gerin La Champine Viognier 2015 75cl

      The Gerin family is located in the heart of the Côte-Rôtie vineyard, in the village of Ampuis, for 6 generations. This vineyard located 30km south of Lyon, is the northernmost appellation of the Rhone Valley and also one of the smaller, because it extends only about 280Ha. The influence of the Mediterranean and continental climates gives tannic wines, powerful, but also silky and elegant.

      Today the estate extends over almost 12Ha, and the two sons of the family, Michael and Alexis, still have challenges to overcome with the plantations on a fabulous terroir of Côte-Rôtie "Les Lézardes", 4Ha to plant, the adventure is not ready to end...

      A super glass of Viognier exuding peaches and exotic fruits aromas. Medium to full bodied and with a lovely mouth feel. Ready to drink or can be aged an additional 3 years.

      "This is almost as impressive as Gerin's La Champine Syrah, which is a tremendous achievement as Viognier seems much harder to do well. Hints of crushed stone and struck flint add nuance to the ripe apricot aromas, while the exotic, tropical fruit flavors of mango and pineapple are reined in by a touch of citrus-pith bitterness. Drink now–2018.
      88 Points."
      (Wine Enthusiast Magazine, JOE CZERWINSKI, Jan 2017)
