Le Paradou Viognier 2014
Golden color with silvery glints, clear and bright. Nose of white flowers, white fruits (peach). In the mouth, very fresh and balanced with citrus aromas (lemon), white fruits, and a great minerality. A favorite as an aperitif, Le Paradou Viognier is one of those rare wines that can be paired with asparagus. Very elegant with grilled fishes, fried squid, scallops, it emphasizes dishes with cheese such as parmiggiano risotto and goes well with goat cheeses.
100% Viognier. Bottled by SARL Famille Chaudiere. Located at the southern foot of the Ventoux mountain, Chateau Pesquie is an independent estate gathering three generations around the winemakers Alexandre & Frederic Chaudiere. It is reasonable to think "Paradou" means "Paradise" in the old language of the "langue d'oc," as it is magical to live in the south of France. Yet, "Paradou" actually refers to the old watermills that once dotted the landscape. It is in homage to these majestic giants, built on the banks of streams since Roman times, that Paradou Wines has created these fresh and pleasing wines.
