Domaine Remi Niero Condrieu Chery

2019 Domaine Remi Niero Condrieu Chery - 96 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2019 Condrieu Chery is always a more steely, mineral-driven example of this appellation, but it packs a punch in 2019 and has powerful notes of buttered citrus, pineapple, honeysuckle, and a liquid rock-like minerality. These carry to a rich, full-bodied Condrieu with an opulent texture, moderate acidity, and a great finish. As with most 2019 Condrieu (and 2018s), it's not going to be the longest lived, but who cares? Drink this brilliant wine over the coming 4-5 years."

2018 Domaine Remi Niero Condrieu Chery - 91+ PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2018 Condrieu Chery from Niero is a solid effort that leans toward the more fresh, racy side of the spectrum while still holding onto plenty of fruit. Spiced citrus, honeyed limes, spice, and a touch of sappy floral notes all flow to a medium-bodied, mineral-laced Condrieu that stays tight and compact on the palate. It's going to benefit from a year in bottle and keep for 2-3 years or more."

2016 Domaine Remi Niero Condrieu Chery - 93-95 PTS - WA

wa300"From 70-year-old vines, the 2016 Condrieu Chéry is a bit more concentrated than Niero's Les Ravines bottling, but otherwise, it's similar in its aromas of crushed stone and pineapple. Like the other wines at this estate, it's aged 12 months in a mix of stainless steel (60%) and oak barrels (40%), giving it a rich, slightly oily texture. It's harmonious and long, with pineapple and melon flavors giving way to gingery spice on the finish. - Joe Czerwinski"

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Lastly, and up with the crème de la crème of the appellation, the 2016 Condrieu Chéry is about as textbook as it gets. Apricots, buttered citrus, flowers, and an undeniable minerality all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, layered, multi-dimensional beauty that carries tons pure fruit, yet stays balanced and pure. Bravo!"

2014 Domaine Remi Niero Condrieu Chery - 93 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Brilliant yellow-gold. Powerful peach, melon and tangerine aromas, backed by floral and honey nuances. Silky and open-knit, showing very good heft and thrust to the juicy citrus and pit fruit flavors. Rich yet lively thanks to a core of acidity that drives a long, ginger-accented finish. Textbook Condrieu, and the type I'd drink with decadent foods, like sweetbreads or Veal Oscar. Blue cheeses would also work well. - Josh Raynolds"
