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

  • 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

  • I'm not sure if much, if any Condrieu has made it on the Snooth forum in the past several years. Had my first opportunity to sit down with one on Friday.PnP. Reticent nose. Found some soft peach, stone fruit on the palate, with some good salinity. Medium richness and overall a bit tight at this stage. I've heard Condrieu is best young, though th... Read More
