2016 Cave Yves Cuilleron “Les Vignes d’à Côté” Viognier

Sweeping elegantly into weekend with this lovely Viognier from one of my fave producers. Pear, apricot, lemon, apple, and whiffs of cotton (and even cat pee!) on the nose. Similar apple, pear, apricot, and cotton notes on the palate with lovely minerality.

2016 Illahe Vineyards Viognier

Does this angle make my butt look big? “Illahe” is Chinook for “land, earth, or soil” and this Viognier is of that special Oregon land. Peaches and apricots on the nose along with daffodils and honeysuckle. Full, unctuous mouthfeel on the palate with peaches, bananas, and apricots. Some tropical fruit notes hint at sweetness but the acidity of Meyer lemon snaps it back on the finish.
