Cave de Chante-Perdrix Condrieu 2010
Every other wine-making region in the world attempts to make good Viognier, and a few are successful in the hands of only the most adept winemakers. Nowhere else does this grape reach the heights that it does in Condrieu. This is classic Condrieu with the tell-tale nose of apricots, peaches and honeyed jasmine. On the palate, the wine is bright and fresh with crisp acidity. Great richness follows with a wine that is at the same time honeyed and viscous while possessing excellent balance.
