96The Wine Advocate

Full-bodied, rich and unctuous, with a liqueur of rocks-like quality, as well as thrilling notes of caramelized citrus, tangerine, gunpowder and spice...

93Vinous / IWC

Mineral-accented orchard and pit fruits and a hint of violet on the perfumed nose. Densely packed yet light on its feet, offering palate-staining nectarine, pear and Meyer lemon flavors that show outstanding clarity and powerful back-end thrust. The floral and mineral notes repeat with gusto on the strikingly long, seamless finish, which shows wonderful clarity and tenacity.

France, Rhône Valley, Northern Rhône, Condrieu

The Northern Rhône Valley wine region hugs the Rhône River from Vienne in the north to Valence at its southern tip. The French call the region Côtes du Rhône Septentrionales, and it is divided into eight appellations. Along with its neighbor to the south, the Southern Rhone Valley, it is famous for its big, tannic, intensely concentrated wines. Syrah is the only red grape permitted in AOC wines from this sub-region, though the Syrah can be blended with the white wine grapes Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne, depending on the regulations for each AOC. White wines are made from Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne. Of the eight appellations in the north, the most admired wines tend to come from Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and Hermitage, though there are certainly exceptional wines to be found in St. Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, St.-Peray, Crozes-Hermitage and Cornas. Along with Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne, Rhône wines are among France’s best known and most collected wines. Red wines from these appellations are notable for their signature aromas of bacon and green olives, and for their depth. Robert M. Parker, a great champion of Rhone wines, has written that “the northern Rhône produces three of the greatest wines in the world – the white wines of Condrieu and the red wines of Côte-Rôtie and Hermitage.”


White Wine, Viognier

This is a full-bodied white variety has plenty of natural aromatics such as peach and violets. It’s a low yielding fruit, so it is grown for its taste over its economics. Viognier is considered an ancient grape and an early favorite of the Roman emperors.
