Viognier by Laulerie 2021

18.25

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 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.
Gregory 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. He arrived back at Château Laulerie in 2009 determined to tell a story about the Bergerac terroir through fabulous wines with contemporary branding.
