Domaine Rougie Les Vendanges 2006 Viognier, one of our Top 10 Father's Day Wines


Les Vendanges du Domaine Rougié 2006 Viognier
Rhône Valley, France

Viognier is a highly aromatic varietal from the Rhône Valley in France, with a flavor profile that could include peach, apricot, nectarine, lychee, musk and flower blossom. This particular Viognier (Vin de Pays d'OC) exhibits floral notes with a touch of white fruit. An open and expressive nose leads into the rich and balanced palate, with woodsy notes that bring out intensity in the wine, ending with a nice, lingering finish. The wine is a great match for fish dishes or a smoked salmon salad.
