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 ( – Description from Philip James

  • I have been patroling the internet to find out if Condrieu (Viognier from the northern Rhone) is worth aging - or even capable.  I have a 2006 Domaine du Chene that has been sitting in my fridge for some time now and have begun to wonder about its status.  Everything that I have read on the internet has been a bag of mixed opinions; saying that ...

  • Condrieu les Ravines Robert Niero 2004


    Very much a wine to be had with food rather than on its own. We had Chilli Con Carne and it was a very good match but later after eating it felt very bitter. Dark fruit, plum, tar, slightly smokey but quite herbal too. Not as think as I was expecting but its not a real fruity one to say the least. Read More

  • Guigal la Doriane Condrieu 2006


    Beautiful golden color. Hints of oak underscore mostly floral aroma. Great white for people who hate white - this wine has the complexity and weight of a medium bodied French red. Read More

  • Ferraton Pere & Fils Condrieu les Mandouls 2006


    I love Georges Vernay style, very explosive Condrieu with coconut and pineapple hints, keeping a lot of angle and length.This Condrieu is a different style, it as all about freshness, minerality and fresh quince, apricot and pear. I couldn't taste any oak, don't think they use it.So mineral with a very diversified bouquet. Definitely one of the ... Read More
