La Boheme Viognier

La Boheme Viognier Wine Details

Description: This is the principal white wine grape of the Rhone Valley (also home to Syrah for red wines). Estate grown and steel fermented and aged, La Boheme has pear, mango, and tropical fruit notes. Crisp and refreshing it’s wonderful with pates, smoked trout, or goat cheese. We’ve named this after the title character in Puccini’s opera “La Boheme”.

Varietal Definition
The most acclaimed white wine grape from France's Rhône Valley, Viognier is a highly aromatic varietal, with a flavor profile that could include peach, apricot, nectarine, lichee, musk and flower blossom. The heady perfume of this varietal is one of its trademarks, although its flavors are sometimes problematic in matching with food. However, it does well with lobster, crab and moderately flavored fish. Use it as an apéritif as an alternative to Chardonnay. The "Rhône Rangers" in California have done an excellent job promoting this varietal.
