Condrieu

Appellation d'origine protégée

The appellation extends over 7 communes and the vineyards thrive on the left bank of the Rhône river, on steep granitic hillsides at the foot of the Mount Pilat. On this terroir, the Viognier grape variety produces a wine of great aromatic intensity with a mineral finale.

description_recompenses

After a very warm summer period, welcome rains arrived mid-August, followed again by glorious sunny weather. A beneficial wind then helped to accelerate the ripening process. This allowed the grapes to be harvested under ideal conditions, with perfectly ripe healthy fruit. Thanks to this, 2015 is one of the great vintages of the last ten years.
With its rich and full-bodied profile, this Condrieu is one of the stars of the northern Rhône.
Harvest began on the7th September 2015.
