Condrieu ‘Chanson’ Domaine du Monteillet 2018

59.00

Viognier

This cuvée, located in the heart of the Condrieu appellation, comes only from the place called “Chanson”. This plot selection comes from a steep and arid hillside of muscovite granite, giving it a nice minerality.

“This top-notch estate fashions a bevy of brilliant Condrieu and Côte Rôtie.”

About This Wine...

“Mid-gold colour. Rich, spicy, buttery nose with fat, gloopy texture and soft acidity. There’s a touch of grapefruit bitterness on the finish, and plenty of warmth. This is the less fresh style of Condrieu, but it delivers impressive power. Drink 2019 – 2022.”

17/20 Jancis Robinson 2019

 

“As voluptuous and sexy as they come in the vintage. Flower oil, honeysuckle, marmalade and citrus blossom all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, layered Viognier, and while it packs plenty of fruit on the palate, it stays lively, fresh and pure. It’s a rock star Condrieu to enjoy over the coming 3-4 years.”

93/100 Robert Parker 2018
