About

Product Description:

Wine:
"This white is exotic and lush, with a beautiful acidity keeping it fresh and clean. 100% Viognier, this aromatic bottling is aged only in tank with a light filtration. Harvested by hand from high altitude vineyards. A tremendous value." -Importer

Winery:
"Le Paradou is a young project created in conjunction with Frederic Chaudiere whose family produces some of the most respected wines in the Southern Rhone AOC of Cotes du Ventoux. Sourced from two properties whose raw material is quite unique, the wines carry the name of the centuries-old farmhouse, Le Paradou, belonging to Frederic's family." -Importer

Vineyards:
"The vines, ranging in age between 40 and 60 years old, are cultivated in accordance with the laws of Terra Vitis, an organization that ensures that properties respect the environment in which the vines are grown and stresses the benefits of integrated farming. The vineyard sites are all at high altitudes in the mountains of the Luberon and as such, produce wines with good acidity and bright fruit as opposed to the more dense and rich bottlings coming from the valley floor." -Importer

Winemaking:
"The bottlings are created exclusively from estate-grown fruit and see no wood before bottling to ensure that the vibrancy of the fruit of this area shines through. After a pre-crush triage, the wine ferments and rests in tank until April/May of the following year." -Importer
