Eve’s One Bottle Post: 2010 Les Deux Chats Viognier
If you’re new to reading me I try and do these one-bottle-posts because I firmly believe that the time it takes to review a wine in no way compares to the time a winemaker takes in making said wine. That seemingly obvious statement is my way of paying due respects to any and all winemakers. I drink the stuff, I don’t want to make it, and I thank Bacchus that they put their hearts into the work. Now, onto paying my respects to Chris and Patty Connolly, the winemakers behind the cute Les Deux Chats label.
Les Deux Chats (Also can be found online under The Two Cats)
15.4 Percent alcohol
This is just for observation sake, held over a white sheet of paper (the photo has a manila folder in the background) the unfiltered wine was not cloudy, but clear with some diamond sparkles, the color was the palest shade of lemon.
Pear, pink grapefruit, juicy peach, sweet Hawaiian pineapple and a little bit of elderflower thrown in.
Ripe pear, apple pie, lemon, apricot, sweet cream, tanginess/acidity softens immediately – prior to the lingering finish.
Very good quality. Makes me crave all kinds of food from oysters to soft cheeses to strawberries to a cold seafood salad filled…
