L'appellation Condrieu

Condrieu: pure gold


Grown in the south of the district, it is considered to be an exceptional and hard-to-find wine. Located on steep hills, an extension of the Côte-Rôtie vineyards, the terrain covers only 105 hectares. Condrieu consists solely of the Viognier grape variety; this produces white wines with a full body, high alcohol content, powerful fragrance, and a rounded mouth. They have aromas of apricot, acacia honey, pears, or almonds.
