Les Jamelles Viognier 2017
A rich, very aromatic wine. Lots of characteristic fruity scents (varietal aromas), such as apricots and fresh peaches. It also displays floral nuances, such as acacia flowers, lilies and, in particular, the famous "blue lavender" of Provence, together with a hint of fresh bananas. The palate is very rich, round and syrupy on the palate, but displays good freshness and acidity, which prevents it from being too heavy. The richness and acidity are exceptionally well-balanced.
Les Jamelles is a unique collection of handcrafted varietal wines that have been produced in the Pays d'Oc, in the South of France, since 1991.
Catherine and Laurent Delaunay travelled throughout the Languedoc-Roussillon region for several years to determine which were the best terroirs for each variety and convince growers to work with Les Jamelles to produce characterful, well-balanced, complex wines that express their varietal characteristics.
The grapes, grown year upon year by local growers, are vinified on site as close as possible to the vineyards, under the watchful eye of Catherine Delaunay and her winemaking team. The most up-to-date techniques are used, and are adapted to suit the characteristics of each wine and each vintage.
