Maison Nicolas Perrin Condrieu - 2013

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.

This has a lovely creamy mouthfeel, with flavors of Jonagold apple, Cavaillon melon and fennel gliding along. Lightly buttered brioche notes frame the flattering finish.
