"Another winner, although not as stunning as the 2010 or 2009 were, is their 100% Viognier cuvee, the 2011 Cotes du Rhone "Blanc de Viognier." They do as good a job with Viognier in the south as one can expect, and while this wine is slightly less exotic than its two predecessors were in their respective vintages, it has slightly more wet rock and a steely character. Still, the floral notes are there, along with that tell-tale Viognier give-away, hints of white peach and apricots. It is fresh, medium-bodied, slightly lighter than the 2010 or 2009, as well as less exotic, but very, very good. Drink it over the next year."
