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

    Snoothrank:

    Sumptious, but balanced and fresh - not at all heavy. Highly aromatic with flowers and tropical citrus on the nose. Pear, peach and (I know this sounds odd), rootbeer on the palate. Darn good! Read More

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is special. It has some great aspects already however given more time I think it may improve. Its best suited to an experienced wine drinker since I find the thrid tier flavors and finish really interesting. There are probably less expensive alternatives for newer wine drinkers. I enjoyed the depth of the wine... it really held me capt... Read More
