Viognier is the exception in our wine range. It is our only single varietal wine with the Marsanne cuvee. Picked by hand in 15kg cases, the grapes are whole-cluster pressed and fermented in concrete tanks under temperature control between 14 and 16 degrees Celsius to keep maximum fruit expression. Only fifteen percent of the wine is fermented and aged in oak barrels to add some roundness and depth.
Our Viognier combines freshness to the typical notes of this grape: citrus fruits (grapefruit, orange peel) and also exotic fruit like mango and some floral notes. The mouth is pleasantly rich making this wine an excellent choice as an aperitif and a wonderful accompaniment to grilled fish and exotic salads.
Montfaucon is located opposite to Chateauneuf-du-Pape, just across the Rhone River. Our vineyards are spread out between Montfaucon and the two neighbouring towns, Roquemaure and St Genies de Comolas.
The original 18 hectares (1995) of vineyards have grown to 45 hectares by planting new vineyards and by buying old ones. Our vines are up to 90 years old with an average age of 40 years. All the vineyards are farmed at low yields (between 25 to 42 hl/ha).
