Description

Only planted in 2016, Chateau Laulerie’s signature Viognier began to unveil its personality by the 2018 vintage, fully expressing its three most sought-after qualities; tension, minerality and aromatic maturity.

With a nose signalling perfumed honeysuckle, gently stewed apricots and pear, on the palate the trademark Viognier characteristics can be found, namely a fleshy and round vivacity and flavours of ripe peach, apricot and mango with a refined oily finish.

Great as an apéritif, it can also make a great companion to an avocado crab salad or a meaty fish like monkfish.

Producer: Vignobles Dubard

Vignobles Dubard is the second generation family operation of Gregory and Marine Dubard, located in Bergerac, just east of Bordeaux and the Durdogne river. The homestead, Château Laulerie, is a 19th century stone farm surrounded by the original livestock buildings. The estate comprises 85 hectares of vines with Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc and Malbec dominating plantings. Soil-type here is almost identical to that of neighbouring Saint-Émilion but land, and subsequently wine here, is much more favourably priced.
Both graduated winemakers, Gregory and Marine first gained experience in St Chinian and Chateauneuf-du-Pape, traveling further afield to gain experience in Italy and New Zealand, and finally closer to home in Pomerol. They arrived back at Château Laulerie in 2009 determined to tell a story about their Bergerac terroir through fabulous wines with contemporary branding. We think they've done a rather splendid job so far.
