Patricia & Rémi Bonneton - La Tangente Metonymia Blanc 2019 - 13.5%
Metonymia is a blend of mainly Viognier, with Chardonnay, Grenache Blanc & Muscat sourced from an organic grower in the Gard, Southern Rhône. The juice and skins of the Viognier macerate together for one week before being pressed off, the rest is direct-pressed - everything goes into a mixture of big old demi muid and some clay tinaja the Bonnetons have imported from Spain.
A complex palate, dense with dried apricot and peach, with a grippy jasmine tea note, this one stands up to a wide array of powerful flavours on the table.
