Tasting Note:

The most sophisticated and mineral Condrieu, not just in this cellar but in the whole region. A neat, detailed nose of citrus and peach blossom precede a palate that offers juicy ripe peach fruit with a refreshing minerality.

It is one of the great vineyards of Condrieu. Aged in barriques for a year – 10% new only.
