Laurent Miquel produces elegant wines in his family vineyards high in the Languedoc hills of Southern France. He harvests at night when temperatures are cooler to ensure the delicate grapes are gathered under perfect conditions. Laurent represents a new generation of winemakers combining his ancestors’ wisdom with his innovative approach and an inﬂexible focus on quality. Working in harmony with nature, he creates wines of character which reﬂect the Languedoc’s inimitable style.
This is light, crisp and steely with a cascade of citrus notes flooding in. Lemon, lime, Fiji pear and apple bounce around together. There is a creamy mouthfeel with a hint of banana which makes this a great midweek refresher.
90 Points, Decanter
It’s hard to pick just one of the many excellent Viogniers that Laurent Miquel produces around this price point, but for the money this is hard to beat, with its voluptuous white peach and nectarine fruit (harvested at night, as the name of the wine suggests). Enjoy it young and fresh. (previous vintage)
