Description

François planted his vines by selection massale in 1990 and has various small holdings on some of Condrieu's finest terroirs. Aged in a mix of Stockinger 500 ltrs demi-muids and new to 6 year old barrels, this has real depth of apricot and pear fruit, with hints of verbena and floral notes, is clean and very well defined on the palate and long on the finish which is stamped by an attractive gout de terroir.
