Condrieu 'Jacques Vernay's Viognier Les Vieilles Vignes' 2019 - € 98.00
Sensory features: The colour of single vineyard Condrieu is a very intense lemon yellow. Its exuberant nose reveals explosive aromas of apricot, lychee and rose. A light touch of toasted notes and fresh honey give this great Condrieu its scope and signature. Without being flashy, this wine reveals the same complexity on the palate, with a fleshy texture underpinned by structuring acidity and a balanced level of alcohol. The finish is fresh, fragrant and of rare length!
