Domaine Les Bruyères, IGP Viognier, 6 Bottle Case 75cl
IGP Viognier Les Monestiers David Reynaud, organic, natural, honeyed, supple, medium bodied with elegant stone fruits; delicious white wine from the Northern Rhone Valley. This lovely, versatile white is made from 100% Viognier grown on the steep slopes of the Northern Rhone. Soft, aromatic and floral, with notes of peach, quince and honeysuckle, it has a wonderfully pleasing mouthfeel. A wine which really punches above its weight showing the richness and depth more associated with Condrieu but from a lowly IGP. Try pairing with Asian cuisine, or a salad with walnuts and apples.
Domaine Les Bruyères has been in David’s family since the 18th century. Passed down from generation to the next, he started making wine with his mum after finishing his studies in 2000. He bought new plots, bringing the estate up to 20 hectares – plus 8 hectares farmed by a friends, and converted to organic soon after. From 2003, he converted to biodynamics. All fruit is destemmed and then fermented in either old oak, steel or huge cement eggs.
