Cinquante-Cinq Viognier 2004 wine review by (PB)

This French wine from the Languedoc was a disappointment. I love Viognier (pronounced, Vee-oh–nyay) as it typically has a very fragrant and floral bouquet with rich flavors. This one does have a nice bouquet of fresh cut flowers and rich in pears with a side note of fresh cut grass more typical of a Sauvignon Blanc.

In the mouth it is a bit tart and a little flat and definitely short. Flavors are non-descript. At $12, I would steer you away from this...Yalumba (Australian) tends to produce a very nice Viognier for a similar price.
