Detailed information

Vintage

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.

Grape varieties

Viognier

Terroir

The vineyards are located in the commune of Malleval in the southern sector of the appellation. They are at more than 300 m in altitude, with a south/south-eastern exposure. The soils are a combination of migmatite, granite and gneiss conferring exhuberant aromas and strong mineral qualities to the Viognier grapes.

Winemaking

Manual harvest. After a short cold-soak, the alcoholic fermentation took place in vats followed by the malolactic fermentation in 275-litre oak Laurus barrels. 15 months elevage on fine lees, with a regular stirring of lees during the first 6 months.
Production: 3,000 bottles and 250 magnums
Bottled on: 11th May 2017
