Under the « IGP Pays d’OC » denomination, Viognier is part of the flamboyant range of best Languedoc grape varieties. In the heart of the Hérault department, we have selected parcels for their complementary nature to produce a fine balance between freshness and richness.
Different vineyard parcels are selected for their complementary nature to produce a fine balance between freshness and richness : limestone and clay soils at mid-slope and South-facing.
