Condrieu

Condrieu is a small and prestigious wine appellation in the northern Rhône Valley of France, dedicated to the production of white wines from the Viognier grape. This appellation includes the municipalities of Condrieu, Saint-Michel-sur-Rhône, and Vérin, and it is known worldwide for its remarkable and expressive white wines.

Viognier, the only permitted grape variety for Condrieu wines, thrives on the steep granite slopes along the banks of the Rhône River. The soil and microclimate contribute to the unique characteristics of these wines. Condrieu is known for its lush, aromatic and full-bodied white wines with a pronounced floral character. The aromas and flavors often include apricots, peaches, acacia blossom and sometimes subtle spicy notes.

Condrieu wines are often complex and have an excellent ability to age, developing additional layers of aromas and texture over the years. However, production is limited, which contributes to their exclusivity and sought-after character.

The Condrieu appellation is highly regarded among wine lovers and connoisseurs due to the unique characteristics of Viognier from this specific terroir. These white wines are among the most refined and rare in the world and are often associated with elegance, finesse and an impressive aromatic profile.
