Condrieu

The exceptional Rhone Valley white wine

 
The Viognier grape variety produces white wines which reveal both violet and yellow fruit aromas. The complexity of the aromas can be savoured early on as these wines can be served young. The Condrieu vineyards are planted on the narrow terraces situated on the steep slopes of the Rhone Valley. Over the years, the Condrieu appellation has become highly recommended throughout the world for its fine, white wines.
