Laurent Miquel Nord Sud Viognier 2009 - this has a rich and succulent peachiness, touches of honeysuckle and a creamy lick, thanks to partial fermentation in barrel.
Overall, a fresh and vervy vine, with good depth, from the hands of southern French experts. 13.5pc alc. €10.99 Available from Dunnes.
Domaine Mandeville Viognier 2009 — from the south of France, a good-value, easy drinker, with lashings of ripe, fresh peach flavours, cut through with a crisp citrus edge, leaving a dry finish. 13.5pc alc. €7.29 Available from Marks & Spencer.
