La Butte d'Or Condrieu
Alain Jaume ( Grand Veneur )
France - Rhone Valley - Condrieu AOC

The wine comes from vineyards planted on hillsides and soils that are covered with granite. The east and south-east exposures offer an environment where the Viognier expresses the best of its aromatic potential.
La Butte d'Or Condrieu shows a golden yellow color, a complex nose of exotic fruits and hints of apricot. The palate exhibits some brioche notes that mingle with the delicate flavors of white peach and apricot compote. This Condrieu reveals its typical racy character with a long and fine finish.

wa89"Hints of white pepper and ginger appear on the nose of the 2020 Condrieu la Butte d'Or, a textbook example of the appellation. Medium to full-bodied, combining floral, spice and ripe fruit notes, it's an easy-drinking introduction to Viognier's natural home. - Joe Czerwinski"

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Showing better than last year, beautiful citrus, pineapple, and orange blossom-like notes emerge from the 2019 Condrieu La Butte D'Or. Medium-bodied on the palate, it has a clean, pure, balanced texture and outstanding length. This classy, elegant Condrieu shows its place of origin and offers lots to love. It's going to drink well for 2-3 years."
