2013 this for the $ lovely, full honeydew melon bright acidity. It's a great wine at a better price.

Pretty plane jane for Rhine. Not all that much weight and a bit off on the nose.

Normally not a fan of Couron...well...not a fan of the importer, but I'm warming up to this domain. Super traditional CDR Viognier. Light tropical essence with a tinge of French oak and a surprising ripe pear and buttery finish. $11 / 88pts

Fragrant nose of lavender, fresh oak, asian pear, melon, and grapefruit rind. The palate features lemon, oak, and honey. High alcohol and acid.

Not a fan. Maybe it was the bottle. Totally astringent in the finish.

Wines like this remind me why I want to live in France. Had to stop myself from guzzling it but did buy a full glass after sampling it in a flight. Honey, yellow apple, touch of vanilla, maybe some nutmeg? Or something. A bit orange peely but supple on the finish.

Sinple crisp melon. Acidity. Like this more than the Cougar Crest Washington Viognier.
