Established in 1940, the Condrieu appellation is located in the Rhone Valley. It covers a total area of 168 hectares, divided into the communes of Chavanay, Condrieu, Limony, Malleval, Saint Pierre de Bœuf, St Michel sur Rhône and Vérin. The vines are exclusively of Viognier, a white grape variety that benefits from soils composed of granite, decomposed rock, mica, schist and clay. The continental climate is also ideal for the cultivation of this varietal. The wine, with its pale golden colour and shades of green, develops floral and fruity fragrances on the nose before taking on more animal, spicy and empyreumatic notes as they age. The wines of the appellation Condrieu are to be consumed in their youth but can also be kept.
