Just what you would expect from Condrieu. Complexity and power. Rich golden wine with peach, apricot, honeysuckle and mango characters with a touch of spice.
The wine is fermented and then matured on its fine lees for 1 to 4 years in 20% new oak and 80% old oak barrel.
A weekly stirring of the lees takes place during the first months. Then the malolactic fermentation takes place.
