- Rhone Valley
- Condrieu AOC
Domaine de la Mordorée owns the vineyards in the Condrieu appellation. The appellation is named after the commune of Condrieu, meaning a corner (coin) of land where two streams meet (rieu, akin to the Spanish rio).
The vineyard was abandonned back in the 1960 as the work couldn't be done by machine. Christophe Delorme found some old plantings of Viognier in the middle of the growing vegetation that took over the piece of property. The planting was completly redone in 2004. The soil is extremely poor, which is great for low yield, intense and concentrated wines.
The Condrieu AOC produces wine from a single grape varietal - Viognier, giving rise, not far from the city of Vienne, to a wine like not other - a white wine of high quality and great delicacy. Very fragrant, with a great richness of aromas, the wine is extraordinarily rich and mellow, with great smoothness.
