Henri de Richemer Cotes de Thau Viognier 2011 Wine Review (NW)
Fragrant melon and floral notes on the nose
Medium bodied on the palate
Nicely tapering finish of tropical fruit and some acidity
Okay, here's a great value white wine. It's interesting, balanced, and priced right at $11. The nose is fragrant and inviting, while the acidity backs up the tropical fruit flavors. It's a basic Viognier varietal wine from Southern France, but it's well made. Pair with dishes like roasted chicken, grilled fish, or steamed vegetable. Raise a glass!
