Vin de Lac 2008 Vie! Viognier Lake Chelan

vin-du-lac-viognier-chelan.jpg

A clear straw color in the glass, the Vin de Lac 2008 Viognier Lake Chelan (14.3%) offered citrus fruit and wet stone notes to the nose.

Crisp acidity with a pleasing minerality in the beginning but then followed by a bit of heat to the back of the throat on the finish.

While it showed promise, the higher alcohol relative to other Lake Chelan 2008 viogniers I have tried recently would prompt me to pass on another bottle of the Vin de Luc Vie! ($18).
