Moving on to the most famous White Rhône there is, Viognier, I think you’d be hard pressed to find a better producer than Cuilleron. While his reds sometimes seem a bit too managed for me, the array of Viognier he has produced within the Condrieu appellation are always worth taking a look at. Try La Petite Côte for youthful fruit and some obvious barrel ageing, Les Chaillets for a deeper expression of the same, Vertige for more mass and power and Ayguets for a uniquely sweet expression of Viognier.
Of course that is just the tip of the iceberg. Cuilleron produces other Viognier wines, Marsanne, Roussanne and blends from throughout the Rhône in a similar style. Definitely a touchstone for white wines in the Rhône.
