2013 Domaine Grand Veneur Cotes du Rhone Blanc de Viognier - 87 pts - WA - RP

wa"One of my favorite estates in Châteauneuf du Pape (an area now being brilliantly covered by my colleague Jeb Dunnuck), Domaine Grand Veneur is internationally recognized for their fabulous Châteauneuf du Papes, but they also produce some terrific values. The estate wines are sold under the Grand Veneur label, but they have also started a négociant business under the name Alain Jaume. Those wines have been very promising as well. The 2013 Blanc de Viognier is 100% Viognier bottled six months after the harvest. One of the least-expensive, high-quality Viogniers in the market, it offers up white peach, apricot marmalade, mango and spring flower notes. Medium-bodied and dry, the 2013 is slightly lighter than previous vintages, but will offer tasty drinking over the next several years. - Robert Parker"
