Under the Roman Empire the cultivation of the vine was in overproduction. Emperor Probus ordered half of the Gallic vineyards to be torn down, but only one vineyard to be spared … his “darling” hillside overlooking the Rhone Valley.
This legend is now revealed in this wine with notes of pear, peach and apricot on a honeyed and slightly spicy background.
Tasting notes of Condrieu wine
Intense and very fine notes of white fruit (pear, peach), apricot on a honeyed and slightly spicy (cinnamon) but still fresh.
Roundness out of the ordinary while remaining fresh and balanced.
Food & wine pairing
Fish in sauce, white meats with cream and foie gras.
