Launched in 1994, this is a magnificent, age worthy Condrieu from probably the most famous family in the Northern Rhone.
Made from 100% Viognier picked by hand from 5 of the steepest plots in the appellation: Cote Chatillon, Chateau Volan, Coteaux du Chery and Colombier. In order to keep the yields low the vineyards are green harvested a few times.
The average age of the vines is over 40 years old, and the wine is fermented in oak barrels and matured for 12 months in 100% new oak barrels. Malolactic is completed 100%.
