André Perret’s passion for vines made this Biology graduate return to this village, where he succeeded his father in 1982. The farmland, then mainly occupied by fruit-trees, was planted with vine-stocks and extended to 13 hectares. André is willing to preserve terroir and nature, even if this involves difficulties such as terrace cultivation of the vines on steep hillsides.
This Condrieu, with its pale yellow colour, is very aromatic and fresh,
featuring peach and apricot flavours combined with a long finish and luxurious mouthfeel.
This wine is delicious to drink immediately after maturing, at a temperature of about 12-14 degrees. It is excellent as an aperitif and goes well with foie gras, seafood, green asparagus and with the famous goats cheese of Condrieu called “Rigottes”.
"Fresher and more floral than the bottled 2016, the medium to full-bodied 2017 Condrieu offers apricots, lychees and peppery spices on the nose and palate. It's silky in texture, with a lush, ripe feel on the finish. Drink 2018 - 2020."
