Natalie's Score: 90/100

An incredibly great and aromatic French wine for the price. Wow. Lovely floral Viognier from southern France by one of the region's best-known producers. Aromas of clementine, apple blossom and honeydew on the nose. Lemon zest and mouth-watering on the palate. Medium- to full-bodied. Intense and lovely. Great for Asian fare.

Viognier food pairings: grilled shrimp, lobster, crab cakes.

Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Clean, crisp and full bodied, zesty lemon peel, green melon, orange blossom with long finish and persistence of floral, and lemon meringue. Well-balanced medium-plus mouthwatering acidity and bursting with fruit. Pairs well with lightly pan-fried filet of sole. Tasted 2015 in Sept 2017. 90 points. Great value. Enjoy! BespokeTastings
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Clean lemon, stone fruit melon and floral notes with juicy high acidy and crisp finish. A balanced, medium-bodied, flavourful viognier pairing well with crispy Greek calamari. Tasted Sept 2017 by @sommsosa
Dan Carkner rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Bright and juicy with a weighty palate and enough tangy zip to keep you salivating (classily drooling). Pretty white flower with pear and strong melon aromas. Pineapple and chalky minerality jump on board on the palate. Just had a sip with butter chicken and I'm not disappointed. A very nice summer sipper especially for the price.
Gérard Bertrand Réserve Spéciale (2015) is a classic, floral, apricot, honey and soft citrus Viognier from the Pays D'oc, Roussillon wine region, made by one of the region's best-known producers. A beautiful medium gold in the glass this medium-plus bodied white is also fresh and crisp and perfect with roast chicken. - Community Wine Reviews
