Condrieu Wine

Condrieu (From the French coin de ruisseau meaning "corner of the brook") is a French wine-growing Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) located in the northern Rhône wine, near Vienne and to the south of the Côte-Rôtie AOC. The vineyards are situated in the seven communes of Limony, Chavanay, Malleval, Saint-Michel-sur-Rhône, Saint-Pierre-de Boeuf, Vérin, and Condrieu in the French departments of Ardèche, Rhône and Loire on the steep slopes of the foothills of the Massif Central on the right bank of the Rhône river. The four southernmost communes can also produce wine under the Saint-Joseph AOC. The wines made in this AOC are exclusively white, from the Viognier grape, which may have originated in the region. Within Condrieu is the enclave AOC of Château-Grillet, producing wines that are also 100% Viognier. Source: Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Condrieu_AOC) – Description from Philip James

Condrieu on Snooth

  • Count me in as one who has not had a Voignier epiphany. I've had some Condrieu's that were nice and aJemrose that tried to come close but for the most part nah. Tasted a load of Virginia Voignier a few years back and they did nothing for me. IMO it's best used a a blending wine to add florals to Syrah. Read More

  • Nice VV,I believe Guigal makes some single vineyard Condrieu as well, I guess the honus is on me to spring for one. Since I have the 16' D&R on the way and the Jaffurs is accessible I may do a tasting of some 16' Viogniers, I'll see if I can grab the Anglim. Not much hope of getting any more Kamen. Read More

  • Duncan, wasn't talking about all Condrieu or Viognier. Just a lot that has been neglected by better winemakers, and what is produced often promises on the nose but goes flat and stunted on the palate leaving a headshaking response. Too often when I'm ready to try a new one and get a pour at a bistro or some such place the nose is sexy and uplift... Read More
