Description

La Combe Pilate (pronounced “La kohm pe-lot”) is 100% Viognier from a hillside vineyard on Michel Chapoutier’s property where Michel pushes the boundaries on the biodynamic concept with his experimental range called “The Alchemy Wines”. The symbol on La Combe Pilate’s label is the alchemic symbol for spirit and is inked to Chapoutier’s biodynamic philosophy – to respect and transform the raw material into a high quality product while showcasing the spirit of the land. The Collines Rhodaniennes IGP is characterized by the hills and valleys that surround the Rhone River. With the Massif Central lying to the west and the embryonic foothills of the Alps to the east, the Rhone River carves its way through south-eastern France to the Mediterranean Sea.

Tasting notes

Made from 100% Viognier, the IGP Collines Rhodaniennes La Combe Pilate is a ripe, unctuous beauty that boasts a huge nose of ripe peach, orange blossom, and honeysuckle. Rich, medium to full-bodied and textured.

Vinous
  • v91

Pale, green-hued yellow. Aromas of fresh orchard and pit fruits are energized by lemon zest, honeysuckle and dusty mineral notes. Subtly sweet nectarine, melon and tangerine flavors show good depth and sharp definition. Closes very long and precise, displaying resonating floral and mineral notes and strong persistence.

Floral and citrus-scented, the 2018 IGP Collines Rhodaniennes La Combe Pilate Viognier comes from vines planted near Michel Chapoutier's home. It shows excellent balance this year, being neither too ripe nor too rich, but it also avoids any sense of under-ripeness or bitterness.

Made from 100% Viognier, the 2018 IGP Collines Rhodaniennes La Combe Pilate has a ripe, Condrieu-like perfume of buttered tropical fruits, apricots, and honeyed flowers. Ripe, medium to full-bodied, and textured, it's a smoking Viognier that's geared for the dinner table.
