    Viognier is a fragrant and floral variety that makes full-bodied white wines with perfumed aromas of blossom, rose, peaches, apricots, honeysuckle, and stone fruit. Viognier grapes do not develop these signature aromas until very late in the growing season, and by the time they are ready for harvest the grapes have reached a very high level of sugar ripeness, contributing to the wine’s low acidity and high alcohol level. Many winemakers age these wines in oak, and the best examples come from the Northern Rhône, specifically in the sub-region of Condrieu. Look to producers such as E. Guigal and Yves Cuilleron for the best expressions of this variety.

    Viognier’s delicate aromas require pairing it with a dish that embellishes its natural flavors. Typical examples include sautéed shrimp, fondue, root vegetables, and pork loin.
