Domaine Chateau de la Selve Saint Regis Viognier 2006, France

Straw yellow in colour, this Viognier has a very light apricot and white peach nose that has a soft sweetness.

To taste there is a crisp acidity to complement a light apricot and white peach flavour that maintains a medium-long length.  I expect that if the wine was too chilled that it would lack quite a bit of its delicate flavours.  With a light chill however, the crisp acidity was almost non-existent (or maybe it was just that I was onto my 2nd glass by then!).

The flavour has a sense of intrigue about it and I think I like it, although I’m completely sure.  Then again, I think I have been known to say that a bit about Viognier.

Drinking well now although it has enough structure to last a while yet.
