Wines to Try: Les Vins de Vienne Condrieu La Chambée 2016 – Bottle Notes
Les Vins de Vienne Condrieu ‘La Chambee’ 2016. Enticing notes of bright, fresh tangerine, sweet honeysuckle, and subtle apricot on the nose. Dry. Ripe and bold texture with lush notes of stone fruit (mainly peach and apricot). Pineapple, vanilla, and allspice provide a beautiful frame to balance the robust tree fruit flavors. Fresh and vibrant on the complex finish that shows pineapple, ripe tangerine with hints of white pepper.
Condrieu, founded in 59BC by a roman chef. Planted on narrow and steep terraces, the vineyard is in the Northern Rhone Valley of France.
9 months on the lees in French oak casks at low temperatures.
Oh my goodness! Les Vins de Vienne Condrieu ‘La Chambee’ 2016 is a banging bottle of Viognier. If you can get your hands on this bottle, don’t let it go. The price tag is a bit steep at $50+. However, it is well worth a sip. I highly recommend seeking this one out.
Please keep in mind wine is subjective, and each palate has it’s own preference. I encourage you to explore and sip your way to what is pleasurable to your palate.
If you have any favorite Viognier’s to recommend, please drop a note in comments. I am always welcome to suggestions.
