Graeme and Julie’s story is one for the history books. After a romance ensued in the French vineyards in which they worked, the pair fell in love not just with one another, but with the idea of combining their passion for winemaking and opening their own vineyard. The wine they cultivate is tended to with nothing but the utmost care and respect, and it really shows.
Featured in the 2021 edition of Le guide des Meilleurs vins de France, Domaine Bott’s First Flight Viognier is an exquisite white. Made by none other than the winemakers voted as Winemakers & Terroirs of the future, this bottle of white wine is aged for nine months in a French Oaked barrel for a long-lasting woody finish that leaves you refreshed and revitalized.
Aromas of pale citrusy zest hit the nose first, followed by the subtle sweetness of orange stoned fruits such as peach and lingering apricot. This beautifully balanced bottle is certainly versatile, rich and ripe yet nimble and elegant. Full of flavor and well structured, this isn’t an easy bottle to forget.
100% Viognier Grapes Contains sulfites.
