"Green-hued straw-yellow. Penetrating aromas of fresh citrus and pit fruits are complemented by hints of chalky minerals, fennel and violet. Juicy and energetic in the mouth, offering fresh peach and orange zest flavors that show excellent focus and mineral drive. The mineral note carries emphatically through the incisive finish, which hangs on with outstanding persistence. Drinking window: 2019-2024. 92 points

It’s been a pleasure to watch Villard’s white wine program evolve over the years, from showing some of the most opulent character in the region to a more restrained but still highly expressive mineral-driven style. The same can be said for Villard’s red wines. There’s a wide range here and the wines tend to be forward so they’ve found favor in many restaurants throughout the region.
