2015 Condrieu (Rosiers, Domaine de)

Domaine de Rosiers, Condrieu, Northern Rhone, France 2015

{organic} 100% Viognier

NECTARINE & LYCHEE, DRIED ROSES, FULL YET FIRM

Condrieu’s granite slopes overlooking the town of Ampuis and the Rhone River are Viognier’s home turf, and it’s here that the grape does its most revered work. Intensely characterful, with poignant peach, floral, and tropical perfumes, the variety can border on overblown when grown in hotter climates or allowed to become overripe, but, like the greatest examples of Condrieu, this offering magnificently maintains its freshness with lively acidity, well-defined fruit, and a modern yet moderate 13.5% abv. Voila! C’est Viognier!

Serving Suggestion: Butter-poached, broiled monkfish (lobster is the classic pairing) w/ fresh, sweet tomato halves & basil. Pad Thai w/ fried tofu, cashews, & beansprouts.
