Wine Spectator 90
"This sports bright anise, peach and apricot notes, staying lively through the finish, with hints of mirabelle plum and green almond. Shows lots of range and energy. Viognier, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now through 2017. 800 cases imported."
To celebrate their land, the three winegrowers of the Vins de Vienne named the wine Réméage, which means in local language: winegrower pilgrimage. And the name perfectly corresponds to this wine which was produced with different grape varieties that are used in the whole Rhone Valley. A light and friendly white wine distinguishable thanks to its fine and fresh aspects in mouth.

A collaboration inspired by history, Les Vins de Vienne is a partnership of Yves Cuilleron, Francois Villard and Pierre Gaillard. They are the three superstar, Syrah-specialist vignerons in the Rhône.
Beginning at Rhone's northern most point in 1996, this trio purchased and rejuvenated the old terroir of the vineyard of Seyssuel, located on the left bank of the Rhone, just 25km from Lyon, north of Cote-Rotie. It was Gaillard's readings of historic writers that led him to Seyssuel, home to famed wines during the Roman era, the Middle Ages, and the 19th century. Purchasing his first vineyard in Malleval in 1981, in addition to Les Vins de Vienne, Pierre now manages 77ha of his own vineyards through the estates that he created at Malleval, Madeloc and Cottebrune.
