Like a chard but better. Some butter but still aromatic and good acidity. Went great with lobster!

I am not a fan of Viognier but time after time Alban kills it! Great acidity and hint of ginger. Not too much floral aftertaste

Quite good - refined and unique. Lots of grapefruit, peach, fresh cut flowers.

Intense nose with lots of peach, floral notes, honeydew and melon; rich, full body, balanced alcohol and acidity, palate with flavours of white flowers and exotic fruit

Lighter bodied than its appellation would lead you to believe. Ripe tropical fruit, tangerines, and lovely orange blossom. Acidity keeps it all together, but it still presents itself as opulent Viognier.
