Love Condrieu? This is half the price! A Viognier of real power and finesse, featured on jancisrobinson.com.

Drinks like a Condrieu but at half the price! This is a fantastic wine of real power and finesse, from the cooler easterly slopes of the Northern Rhône.  Lovely acidity, stone fruit and minerality, hailed as a “terrific Rhône Viognier” by Julia Harding MW of jancisrobinson.com

Contrary to Condrieu vines that face south, the Viognier is planted on fine granite-laden sandy hillsides facing east. This cooler expositions allows fruit to develop good acidity, as well as richness and maturity as a result of low yields.

From eminent producer Pierre Gaillard, currently in charge of 77 hectares of vineyard across the Northern Rhône, ranging from Côte-Rôtie through to Cornas in the South. The result is an extensive range of wines that demonstrates the fantastic terroirs of the Rhône Valley.

Maturation in French oak (5% new) for 7-8 months. Regular lees stirring enhances the complexity, structure and mineral characteristics of the wine.

£18.50 per bottle
