Additional Information on Chene Bleu Viognier Igp Vaucluse 2013

Winery: Chene Bleu

Varietal: Viognier

Although primarily associated with the Rhone region of France, the precise origins of the Viognier grape variety are unknown, and the subject of much debate. However, these fine and delicate green skinned grapes are an important varietal for many of France's most elegant white wines, and they are quickly beginning to spread around the New World, too, where wineries are discovering their unique qualities and unusual character. Viognier grapes are notoriously difficult to grow, due to the fact they are highly susceptible to mildew, but wineries persevere with them nonetheless, producing wines which are highly aromatic and have a great, fruit-forward character. Their delicate aroma suggests sweetness due to its flowery, sappy nature, but the wine itself generally very dry and crisp, and full of summery, light and refined qualities.

Region: Provence

Provence is a very special wine region, located in the south of France where the Mediterranean sea meets the beautiful green and rolling landscapes of the mainland. For centuries, the region has been deeply associated with its unique cuisine and characterful wines, which stretch back through history an impressive amount of time. Indeed, Provence can claim to be one of the original French wine regions from the classical age, and its wine culture has been influenced and inspired by a stunning list of different peoples and cultures, who have settled in the stunning green valleys of the region over three thousand years. Today, Provence is most famous for its stunning rosé wines, which have been the favorites of European aristocracy for centuries. However, white and red wines are also made in Provence, and are equally fine and just as capable of expressing this most wonderful of French wine regions.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
