Le Versant Viognier
Le Versant is a collection of 8 fine varietal wines of outstanding quality. Made with grapes from a selection of vines on the Languedoc hillsides offering the best orientation, each varietal proudly shows off its character in a nicely-balanced and elegant style. Thanks to its broad aromatic range, this versatile range offers wines that will delight all wine-lovers and adapt to every consumption moment.
Bright color with green tints. Intense apricot, peche de vigne, and rose. Slight hints of ginger and mints. Strong and generous on the palate developing towards a notably smooth and fruity finish.
The Versant Viognier vines are situated on sunny, north-facing slopes in the Aude department. The soil, composed of chalky “terres blanches”, allows to protect the acidity of grapes and then to obtain well balanced wines. Control of yields via optimal management of nutrition and de-budding.
Pneumatic pressing. Cold static clarification on the lees. Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel, temperature controlled vats. Aged 4 months in stainless steel vats. Batonnage on the lees to accentuate the plumpness on the palate.
