ROUTAS 2012 VIOGNIER VIN DE PAYS DU VAR

We're back in France for September as the warm weather persists and the madding crowds (hopefully!) are safely back home after vacationing throughout the summer months. This coquettish 100% Provençal Viognier (from Condrieu cuttings) does not blush a bit as she plays with our affections, wafting about with a perfume of spring blossoms, peach, butterscotch, lanolin and a touch of river water. Peaches are in play again on the palate, along with unctuous viscosity moderated by apropos acidity as mixed stone fruits and a touch of spice lead to a sweet, satisfying finish. Pair this with fish, white meats and vegetable dishes, white sauce pizzas. 500 cases of this wine were made for importer Jeff Wellburn for California only. So once it's gone, it's gone!

The winery itself is quite interesting, as well. For those used to seeing a sea of vines stretching to the horizon, the Château Routas estate vineyards come as a surprise – there are many small non-contiguous plots interspersed among stands of trees and other natural features, including a copse of truffle oaks. The scrubby, stony wildness of the area is one of its most appealing features. Each planting of vines seems to exist in its own distinctive environment.
