About This Wine:
Vaison la Romaine is a village in the Northern Vaucluse, and is home to a world-famous weekly market for foods and dry goods. If you’ve read any of Patricia Wells’s Provençal cookbooks, you’ve seen pictures of Vaison with its Roman ruins, ancient (and still used) Roman bridge, and breathtaking stone houses hanging on a cliff by the river. Vaison la Romaine’s cooperative winery produces Côtes du Rhône and Côtes du Ventoux wines – the latter named for nearby Mont Ventoux (famous in the U.S. for the Tour de France).

The Côtes du Rhône Viognier is a new wine for the Cave. DC-area residents know that Viognier is practically the official grape of Virginia wineries. The original French version combines great fruit and a little bit of floral aroma, like the Virginia version, but with little or no sweetness, a bit more acidity, and a little flintiness or mineral character. It's an outstanding wine, great for typical white wine pairings and also special-event meals.  In order to be called Côtes du Rhône, the wine can contain no more than 80% Viognier (the balance is White Grenache).  But the blend only enhances the Viognier-ness and also gives it a little extra freshness.
