Pays d’Oc Viognier 2021

IGP Pays d'Oc White

Tasting

Bright colour with golden yellow highlights. Attractive aromas of summer fruit such as peach or apricot. Round and fresh on the palate, evolving towards sweeter, richer notes. The long, fruity finish lingers on delicious notes of apricot.

Food & wine pairings

As an aperitif, of course! But also with scallop carpaccio or slightly matured goat’s cheese.

Detailed information

Vintage

The year 2021 has had its share of climatic events in store for us: frost, rain – too much or not enough – and lack of sunshine. At Château Grand Escalion, the weather was just as rough with an episode of frost disrupting the vegetative cycle, rain and insufficient sunshine. Despite these climatic events, the harvest took place in a relatively usual way for our whites and our rosés which, with relatively low yields, offer a beautiful aromatic, elegant and fruity palette.
