|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Another Sauvignon Blanc-Viognier blend from beautiful Domaine de l'Arjolle, this one a 40%/60%. Unoaked, to maximize the fruit flavours, this shows more of the Viognier floral-rose-and ripe peach , along with a slight herbaceous edge from the SB.
Excellent with Mediterranean seafood dishes; think seafood stews or squid.
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Loved this wine! 60% Viognier, 40% SB. This wine is Vintages calibre. Lots of layers for a white wine making it very versatile. Big floral notes thanks to the Viognier. Some grassiness and a hint of basil, citrus, canned peas, pear, green apple and honey.
Finish is long on the citrus and honey.
Suggested pairing: blackened fish, spicy dishes, summer patio
Tasted Jan 23/14
|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Domaine de L'Arjolle's Equilibre blend of 60% Viognier and 40% Sauvignon Blanc from the cooler 2013 vintage has a beautiful nose full of honeysuckle, lemon, basil, fresh herbs, and asparagus. Aged on the lees for four months with no oak contact to preserve the delicate crisp fruit and herbal notes, this mouthwatering blend is a great match for summer salads with goat cheese.
Tasted January 2014. 89 pts. Matt Steeves
(note this wine is not available yet in LCBO however may show up on the shelves in time for Spring/Summer 2014).
