French Laundry’s Favorite & Featured Grand-Cru

“Site” is a new venture from  Jeremy Weintraub (longtime Seavey winemaker).  He sources from the best “Sites” in California. This latest Viognier is just a good example. The 2016 Site is sourced from the Larner Vineyard.  The Larner Vineyard would be considered a “Grand Cru” if it was located in France.

The wine is on the list at French Laundry, Benu, Michael Mina and some other high-end Bay Area Restaurants.  So I am lucky to have a wine of this caliber in my portfolio as well.

Winery Notes: The Site 2017 Viognier Larner Vineyard, this is an outstanding white that has plenty of classic Viognier character in its buttered stone fruits, banana, and floral aromas and flavors. It’s medium-bodied, has bright acidity, and a beautiful elegance.

Vinous 94 Points: (raised for eight months in neutral French oak barriques) Bright green-tinged straw. Penetrating aromas of ripe citrus and pit fruits are complicated by suggestions of ginger, pungent flowers and dusty minerals. Juicy and deeply concentrated, offering intense white peach, pear nectar and tangerine flavors that show outstanding clarity and minerally back-end cut. The floral note repeats strongly on the incisive finish, which lingers with excellent focus and spicy tenacity.
