Wine of the Week 

2003 J. Vidal Fleury Cotes-du-Rhone Blanc
$11-$12 Retail
The oldest continuously operating Rhone wine firm, J. Vidal Fleury has been producing high-quality wines for more than two centuries. This 100 percent Viognier was made with fruit sourced from 25-year-old vineyards just south of the Rhone Valley near Avignon. A wine with a lovely freshness and great varietal expression, the Fleury offers bursts of citrus and apricot aromas with floral notes followed by rich, round fruit flavors of tangerine and nectarine, some spice and mineral character and honeyed undertones. For maximum enjoyment, serve cool, but not chilled (about 52 degrees F.) Drink young. Good as an aperitif or as a fine accompaniment to white-fleshed fish, baby white veal, chicken and blue cheese. Where to buy it: The Wine Seller. Where to drink it: Lilette. (Listings current at press time.)
