Jean-Luc Colombo 2006 Vin de Pays d'Oc Viognier La Violette

Pale straw color.

Wildflower smell. The name and the rear label advertise the scent of violets. There are pears and peaches as well.

Ripe pears, peaches, tastes the way wildflowers smell. Thick-seeming mouthfeel.

The next day largely unchanged: still a medium-weight wine worth some contemplation.

I think this $12.99 bottle is my favorite Viognier so far, exclusive of a long-ago-tasted Condrieu, and a serious bargain. I'll continue searching for budget Viognier, but I'll be quite happy even if I can't better this.
