Francois Villard Le Grand Vallon Condrieu 2016
Viognier is beautifully expressed in this superb Condrieu. Eleven months spent aging in oak barrels (35% new) has given it breadth and volume.
Wine SpectatorThis is bright, pure and very engaging, with a torrent of honeysuckle, white peach, yellow apple and apricot flavors laced with salted butter and verbena notes. The finely beaded acidity throughout lets this strut its stuff without toppling over. A fresh, modern approach to Condrieu. Drink now through 2022. From France. 125 cases imported.
