Yes, it's true. "Viking" is not just some crazy French word that refers to a special type of French rock or fence -- untranslatable to the gringos. The winemaker's friends call him "viking." But if your wine sucks, it doesn't really matter what your friends call you. Lionel Gauthier's wines do not. They are delicious and his Vouvray sec is realy unique. Made in chestnut barrels (those Vikings with their idisyncracies) that impart a flamboyant raciness to the wine that takes the sweet apple and melon fruit and is like "whapow." Vouvray sec in a handbasket.
