Fresh with white flowers, golden apple, almond.
The Viognier 2020 from Domaine Ricardelle de Lautrec is pale yellow.
On the nose it the bouquet is brisk with white flowers, freshly cut grass, candied lemon peel, golden apple. But it also evolves into more tertiary notes with vanilla, and almond…
The mouthfeel is round.
On the palate it shows candied citrus fruit and it finishes with bitter almond and tea leaf.
The finish is medium long.
Domaine Ricardelle de Lautrec
Domaine Ricardelle de Lautrec is located in the Languedoc wine region of France. It’s not at all far from the sea and a stone’s throw from the border with Spain.
Domaine Ricardelle de Lautrec went organic twenty years ago, one of the pioneer estates in the region. It has also recently started to vinify natural wines with no added sulphites. The decision came from Lionel, the estate owner. Being Lionel sensitive to sulphites himself, he decided to experiment making wine without any amount added.
The test was successful and that’s how the estate started making natural wines for its client as well as for the family’s consumption!Link to here...
