Lot #423. De Vallouit Côte-Rôtie La Vonière 1991

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 93 RP.
"La Vonière is a mini-cuvee of 7,500 bottles that utilizes the maximum 20% Viognier permitted under French law. The result is an immensely fragrant wine that smells as much like a Condrieu as it does a Côte-Rôtie with its peach, apricot, and honeysuckle scents, and smoky, black-raspberry aromas. Because of the high percentage of Viognier, the wine has a dark ruby color, a lush, velvety texture, and gobs of expansive ripe fruit. I was blown away by the elegance and sensual qualities of the 1991." Rhône Book, Dec 1996
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $250
