Maison Les Alexandrins Condrieu - 2016

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.


Pale yellow. Aromas of ripe peach, pear and tangerine are complemented by zesty mineral and candied ginger nuances. In a weighty yet lively style, showing very good clarity and solid thrust to the juicy orchard and pit fruit flavors. Finishes very long and sappy, displaying excellent clarity and a sexy floral quality.

Rich, offering a wide array of creamed pear, yellow apple, peach and apricot flavors stitched with citrus oil and anise notes. Stays energetic and detailed, with ripples of jasmine, honeysuckle, bitter orange and almond throughout, showing a flash of minerality buried on the finish. Drink now through 2024.

Still floral and vibrant, the 2016 Condrieu Maison les Alexandrins is medium to full-bodied, with a softly dusty, tactile feel on the palate that’s akin to crushed stone or gentle tannins. Apricot and melon notes turn more citrusy on the lingering finish.
