This Viognier is easily Maison Bleue's best yet, and it sets a high standard for every Viognier in the state. It's superrich and concentrated without being fat, jammy, bitter or hot. The explosion of citrus, stone fruit and light tropical fruit flavors seems to extend indefinitely on the finish. Details of mineral, baking spice and honeysuckle add interest.
