Famille Descombe Viognier 2022

20% off France


Great value French Viognier displaying typical stone-fruit, honey and citrus characters. Fruit is harvested when fully ripe then cool-fermented in stainless steel with six months ageing on fine lees.

Fresh and inviting on the nose with a hint of apricot, honey and citrus that you’d expect for this noble Rhône varietal. The palate is quite light, crisp and refreshing but with enough weight to support complex flavours of tropical fruit, white peach, orange peel and musk, with a cleansing twist of lime on the finish.

This does really well with sushi or ceviche, the more lime the better!

  • Crisp, refreshing, aromatic
  • 750ml

Producer: Descombe Family Wines

Famille Descombe is a family-owned company since 1905, growing from small vineyard holdings in Beaujolais to operating across Burgundy and latterly into the Rhône in recent years. Distribution was almost entirely domestic until the 2000s, since when they've achieved success in export markets and invested heavily in upgrading on the production side. Marine Descombe (second from left above, with father Florent on the right) is the fifth generation and has overseen much of the modernisation, as well as further vineyard acquisitions in Beaujolais, Chablis and, most recently, the Rhône.

Wines are modern in style with a pride in regional identity — Descombe's portfolio covers some of the most recognised and highly prized appellations in the world — but, largely because of their extensive vineyard holdings and grower connections, they're also able to produce outstanding varietal table wines away from regional restrictions.
