Domaine Clusel Roch Condrieu 2016
Based in the northernmost village in Cote Rotie, this tiny 3.5-hectare domaine is run by Gilbert Clusel, his wife Brigit, and their son Guillaume. The family was early to adopt biodynamic farming. The Condrieu is made from 100% Viognier from two tiny old-vine parcels planted on granite soils. The wine is fermented mostly in oak barrels and aged for 12 months in the same vessels. Ripe peach, apricot and vanilla. Incredible length. Certified organic.
