Maison Nicolas Perrin Condrieu - 2012

AOC Condrieu

Le Condrieu, une appellation qui donne des lettres de noblesse au cépage du Viognier. Tout en élégance, ce vin offre une délicate minéralité s'accordant à une rondeur luxuriante aux notes de fruits exotiques.


Made in a clean, very fresh and racy style, the 2012 Condrieu has textbook apricot and marmalade styled aromas and flavors, medium-bodied richness, and a lengthy, mineral tinged finish. It too gains in richness in the glass and is an impressive effort.

A rich, tropical version, offering languid layers of apricot, creamed peach, quince and glazed pear all gliding along, with flickers of bitter orange, ginger and warmed piecrust filling in the background. For the hedonist crowd.
