A fragrant, fruity, dry white wine from an estate in Condrieu, but made from younger vines in the village, so it doesn't cost the earth, yet is of similar quality to the revered Condrieu Viognier! Orange blossom, peach, apricot and honey notes on the nose and the palate. Easy drinking, and pairs really well with charcuterie.
There is an aura of adventure and humour surrounding François that is infectious. He genuinely loves every aspect of his job and this passion and dedication shines through in his wines. They are bright, poised and vivacious with a spine tingling minerality, combined with amazing depth and intensity. François has firmly established himself as one of Condrieu’s greatest winemakers.
François has seven hectares of vineyard, which includes vineyards in Condrieu, as well as small parcels of Côte Rôtie and Saint Joseph. François firmly believes in the importance of the soil, more so than exposure (though he is very lucky in this as well). This ensures his Viognier has an intense minerality, countering the naturally low acidity of the grape to make it racy, vibrant and thrilling.
