François Villard is a famous winemaker of the Condrieu appellation , real kingdom of Viognier which gives the wine an intense aromatic personality. The rough and demanding terrain does not allow mediocrity and imposes a rigorous work in the vineyard to winemaking: sorting at harvest (with multiple passes if necessary) , long fermentation , barrel aging and lees stirring once months ( operation allowing the delivery of lees , giving the wine more fat and complexity). But it's worth the effort! Because the contours Deponcins is a super white, pure, mineral and beautifully aromatic. Looking like a Condrieu intense fruitiness, he leads us by the nose and leaves us completely in his charm.
