Domaine Mouton, Condrieu Côtes Bonnette 2012

50.00

Condrieu is one of the Rhone Valley’s best kept secrets. This Viognier is rich, oily and tempered with a brisk acidic touch that supports the full body and exotic fruit notes. Amazing wine.

About This Wine...

The Estate

As proprietors of the landmark Auberge du Rozay since the 1700s, the Mouton family may well have been the best known innkeepers in the Northern Rhône. But after 37 years at the helm, Janette Mouton sold the historic inn as the family began to establish a new reputation as quality vignerons right across the street.

Janette’s son Jean-Claude heads up Domaine Mouton. With his wife Françoise, he tends 6.5 acres of vines on the slopes of Condrieu and just under 5 acres in the southern portion of Côte Rôtie. And business savvy Mom runs the domaine’s office.

The Moutons produce two versions of Condrieu and one Côte Rôtie. The fresh and fragrant Condrieu Côte Bonnette is vinified half in stainless steel and half in neutral barrels, and bottled in the June after harvest. The Condrieu Côte Châtillon is a richer Viognier, fermented in barrel and then aged on its lees in a combination of one-third new oak, one-third year-old, and one-third two-year-old barrels before being bottled in September. Domaine Mouton’s Côte Rôtie shows the typical refinement of wines from the southern portion of the appellation with textbook raspberry, violets and white pepper characteristics.
